Moby Dick, geometry, physics. Study every subject everyday. Homework is an indicator of future success. Success is not necessarily happiness but it helps. Freedom is to formulate your own definition of success. Happiness is an imaginary tree, its own reward, and a fact. Facts and fiction may be memorialized in memos or found in dreams. The story starts thus: Each summer the honeysuckles and the huckleberries . . . The web is that extra brain we've all been dreaming of having. Like jumping 4 meters or flying without a plane. To fly like that must one first have homework? Some say yes, some say don't. It depends on how you vote. Happiness is what happens when everything that happens Fits the time perfectly and it's all out of your hands. Not exactly. You don't let go of the steering wheel while driving fast in the passing lane. You look left and right and check your blind spots. Homework is an introduction to everything you're not And all you do not know. It's supposed to help you learn to know where you want to go before going where you have to go. Otherwise you end up on Ulzana's raid Bleeding, without a bandaid. All the achievement in the world won't relieve your loneliness Or satisfy your sexual longing. What girls are like behind their eyes. Survival, procreation. That's all there is to love. But the loved one is the one who can be trusted with your life. Whether Christ or your wife. The Muslim moms. On my walk in the woods I come to a sitting spot Above a small gorge cut by a stream through hemlocks. Here someone has left a statuette of the Buddha and the flags you see Flapping in the wind at sky funerals. This is a pretty good place to sit quietly and think about homework.
