As I sit here tonight, 2 things come to mind.
#1 is Forrest Gump and how he just decided to run, and didn't stop until he felt it was the right time, then he went home. This is my right time, and I'll go home when I think it's the right time!
#2 is that most politicians are afraid of their own shadows, that they are perpetually running for office instead of caring for the peoples needs. I am a firm believer in a few sayings that come to mind, one of which is " If you can't walk the walk, don't talk the talk". The other is " Money talks, bullshit walks". I intend to "Walk The Walk" and "Talk the Talk" about the BS along the way, because today's politics are mostly that, BS.
Of course, my philosophy is just the opposite of that, because I don't have a lot of money but I can walk really well. And of course I can talk, but I'm not a bullshitter. What you get from me is my true feelings. We may not always agree, but at least it's truth! I sleep well.
I have to believe that there are many of you who feel the same, and I hope some of you will join me in my Walk Across Maine in the spring, like they did with Forrest.
