i posted a lot of stuff the other day... in the form of a list of ten items. it was chock-full of things that have kept me from "sharing". life feels full to the max. and yet, how can it be even more jam packed than ever? well it is. it just is. i feel as if there is a sorting mechanism in play weeding through all the little things that compose a full life and making them somewhat orderly. in reality, it feels something like i am a witless contestant participating in a game show.
to get from one activity to the next, it seems that a huge "PLINKO" board is set up close by. Plinko is a game of chance that has been featured on the "Price is Right" for years.
perhaps bob barker is irked with my take on this, one cannot know.
(nor should anyone be hung up by it).
the game is played by a contestant, standing up above the gameboard. this is constructed by a pair of sheets of plexiglass(???) and one of which is a backing material held in place by evenly spaced rods throughout the board. the space open between the two flat sheets is open at the top. a contestent drops some round disks between the separating rods. this allows them to bounce downward, as a pinball might; hitting the rods in an erratic path downwards. the prize denotations at the bottom tray of the game are marked with prizes. . there often is a car to be won and it is shown in sections.you can win a front end, a mid-section and finally the trunk end. if you get all three pieces , you win a car. there are also bountiful as well as more meagre monetary rewards to be won in this manner.
all derived by the makers of the plinko game tenders and sponsers.
well i often experience my day to day travels as something like my life is expressed as on one of those disks floating and bouncing around in between the pins to any indirectly concocted outcome. never is one made directly as a straight line. i surely would like a car that works all the time or a stash of cash. instead, i feel bounced and jostled just getting from one point to the next. upon which i get to start all over with the next decidedly random disk whose outcome is based upon controlled randomness and the stability of
the physical force , gravity
so you can see how i feel a little bit out of control in my own life in spite of the very carefully designed regular pins set between two sheets and finite outcomes for the game? the result is always the same, i start at the beginning and end at the bottom of the board.
thank you all over again lady luck!
this all having been said, the disks are constantly being dropped.
and i am always trying to cope with the outcome.
here is the "busy as a bee" list from the other day... repeated and updated as i have missed some mighty important list items. and i would like to think that i did not add any items that should not have been on it the first time through.
