Thoughts and ideas are like apples, hiding in the branches in late autumn. Sometime ideas are plentiful, and you have to swat them away like gnats At other times, they are more precious than pearls.
In the biography of Steve Jobs, I learned that he too, loved Bob Dylan. At one point, late in Steve's life, he got a chance to sit alone in a hotel room with Dylan.  They talked about his music, and all the songs woven into the fabric of our lives.
Dylan, who could have been arrogant about his music, was honest, and down-to-earth. He said, and I'm paraphrasing, they just came through me. Ideas are like that.
Everybody has ideas. Every piece of music you listen to, every word you read, every thing you touch throughout the day, started out with an idea.
My prayer for the planet, is that we have people who come up with fresh ideas, that help lift the dialog to a level beyond reproach by either side of the political spectrum.....Ideas that fertilize the garden in which we live.


  1. I'm a huge Bob Dylan fan. I like what he said about ideas. And you're right - we do need good people to come up with good ideas to lift us all up. And we need good people who will listen, and be willing to work hard to make the ideas come to fruition. Too many people want everything just handed to them. Nothing good is ever free. Good things are so much more satisfying when we work for them!

  2. I agree that the very great ideas that come to us come from a higher source. There is a divinity found in great ideas. Thoughtful post. I dig it. :)

  3. I agree. We need some fresh and innovative ideas.

  4. Amen to this prayer! Take care

  5. I'm in awe of people with vision, creativity and wonderful ideas that they don't just think about, but they work hard and make them reality. Doing what they were meant to do in life...fullfilling the measure of their creation so to speak. As I get older and look back on my life I only hope I have done a small part in making my corner of the world better and atleast I can say I've enjoyed and benefited from the great ones who have shared their ideas with us!

  6. I'll drink to that :)

  7. It will be interesting to see if we have anyone who will compare to the innovative ideas that Jobs had.

    But yes, ideas are indeed what keeps the Earth spinning and our abilities to defy gravity.

  8. "Amen", Brotha!!
    I wish politicians didn't have to affiliate with a party. Just throw their name out there and say what they mean and mean what they say and let us vote for the individual.
