Goodbye Stranger, It's Been Nice

There might not be such a thing as too much ham in my book, but there definitely is a limit to what you should eat.  I probably reached that a few days ago, so today I'm really gonna stop.  I took the rest of my corn meal masa and topped it with cheese, ham and pesto.  Um, I did serve it with a side of kale because as you can see I'm all about the health.  
I have to remind myself all the time to live my life!  I talk to myself just like that, scoldingly, because I tend to shut off, go on auto pilot, forget that we're in the main event.  I need to be shook or shaken or slapped.  In the meantime, the world keeps turning and I keep getting older and less impressed with myself.   At the same time, I'm trying less to be me, or who I thought was me before I realized that we are all one.  I believe that is the key to this whole mystery and the joke on us is that it is unattainable.  It's hard to shed yourself though, even if you weren't that fond to begin with.  Old habits are hard to break.  You go two steps in any direction and there you are again, same old stupid thoughts and actions.  Coincidentally, as I write this, on the television a movie is playing and the actress reads from a book 'Be happy for this moment.  This moment is your life'.  That's probably it in a nutshell, which is another irony, that it would sound so simple, taunting our lizard brains.  The only thing I know is that I don't want to be thinking about that extra serving of ham on my last day on earth.

Just nod if you can hear me. Is there anyone at home?
