The Lone Ranger and Tonto

The Lone Ranger and Tonto

Stirling Castle

It is so easy to complicate life. Too easy to see shadows that do not exist to  be too clever  for our own good.  Some times the simple way is the best way. Sometimes it is best just to take things as they are.

Let me explain in a simple little story. I hope this does both. Bring a little smile and also give a little thought.

The Lone Ranger and Tonto

The Lone Ranger and Tonto went camping in the desert. After they got their tent all set up, both men fell sound asleep. 

Some hours later, Tonto wakes the Lone Ranger and says, "Kemosabe, look towards sky, what you see?"

The Lone Ranger replies, "I see millions of stars." 

"What that tell you?" asked Tonto.

The Lone Ranger ponders for a minute then says, 

"Astronomically speaking, it tells me there are millions of galaxies and potentially billions of planets. 

Astrologically, it tells me that Saturn is in Leo.

Time wise, it appears to be approximately a quarter past three in the morning.

Theologically, the Lord is all-powerful and we are small and insignificant.

Meteorologically, it seems we will have a beautiful day tomorrow.

What's it tell you, Tonto?"

“You dumber than buffalo chip.   Someone stole the tent."

As I say sometimes the answer is right there before your Eyes.

The painting isa pen and ink of the back of Stirling Castle. This place is close to my heart because of some of the memories it evokes, but that is another story.
