Now I must admit that wrldmrine has been going through a bit of a slump, fewer posts, even fewer guestbook entries, less writing on my behalf, less caring on my behalf, less everything on my behalf, maybe I am not living my life with gusto. (gusto coming from the Spanish verb: to like, but in English, Vigorous enjoyment; zest for life) now don’t get me wrong, I am living my life with much gusto, but not maybe enough gusto to write about it or perhaps I am simply not writing about life with gusto, because I am living my life with gusto. So all gusto aside, the truth is that I am living in a very simple place, I am living in smallville or Pleasantville or what ever movies are in black and white and depict superman growing up as superboy. I really don’t have anything to write about. There is no cabin fever here, no divorce, no beer bottles being hurled at my head, I am quite simply happy and quite simply simple... with that note, I leave you with a journal entry, (the Journal is the San Juan Island news paper, the following is the sheriff’s log) now, if you have any integrity as a human begin and value life as you know it, you will read the following sheriff’s log... you will read it fully. We are talking about a place where you leave your doors unlocked and your keys in the ignition this is the place I live and the life I live. Please, I urge you to take a moment out of your busy life and read this entry... and maybe with that you will understand this exact moment I am in my life in which I move with the fluidity of an eel.
