Order No Rx Levitra
The thoughts that wallets (and Fed Exes) will bring.....
Timing as they say, order no rx levitra is everything.
The other day I received an unexpected Fedex package from my brother and sister-in-law.Â
I opened it and found a wallet with a note inside from my sister in law, order no rx levitra stating it was mom's old wallet they found while cleaning out closets and old items in their house.Â Â
Inside the wallet was my mother's old driver's license, order no rx levitra Social Security card, order no rx levitra insurance and medical cards along with her old checkbook balancing book. My mother always kept impeccable records when it came to the check book.Â Â
Something I haven't managed quite as well, order no rx levitra but I continue to try.
While I was both surprised and touched by the fact they sent me one of mom's old wallets, order no rx levitra it also seemed to strike me as a symbolic representation of what so often glued our family together and in other instances, order no rx levitra divided us apart.Â
I was talking to a friend of mine the other day and she had mentioned her own family situation. When their mother died, order no rx levitra some of the siblings fought so much over money and property that none of the siblings are speaking or associating any longer. What is sad is I've heard similar stories quite a bit from friends. I understand. Order no rx levitra
Money has become the most obvious symbol of power, order no rx levitra safety, order no rx levitra security and "success".Â Â
It seems money has become more important than anything these days.Â Needless to say, order no rx levitra as we all watch the tremendous debacle of our financial institutions, order no rx levitra we begin to realize just how dependent we have all become on a monetary system. Not to mention that money now dictates almost every aspect of our own lives.Â And as we are now seeing, order no rx levitra in DC Dolby sound, order no rx levitra how the green back, order no rx levitra along with various powerful lobbies, order no rx levitra governs and decides the actions of our governing bodies. Order no rx levitra Money ensures who is elected into office today, order no rx levitra irregardless of the capability, order no rx levitra skewed belief systems or even the overall competence of the individual. I don't think I even need to give an example, order no rx levitra but for formalitie's sake, order no rx levitra look no further than our current presidential and vice-presidential candidates. They are either very wealthy, order no rx levitra and/or are being sponsored by those who are very wealthy. The same can essentially be said for those running for state and local offices. Order no rx levitra Â Â
Money, order no rx levitra for all intents and purposes, order no rx levitra relegates those deemed 'appropriate', order no rx levitra to be placed into positions where they can make more money.Â Â
Money dictates to those who have the opportunity to receive the necessary education to become a physician, order no rx levitra attorney, order no rx levitra and/or any other white collar professional position. Of course there are the exceptions -Â those who are talented, order no rx levitra driven and/or lucky enough to receive scholarships and/or have connections to those with money who are willing to help them out to achieve such goals. However, order no rx levitra how many others for whatever reasons, order no rx levitra fall between the cracks and/or simply don't have the appropriate connections or parents to support them? Money certainly grants power to those who are then granted power to control other's lives and their livelihoods.Â
Some time back I was talking with a tennis instructor I was taking lessons from, order no rx levitra who was an amazingly gifted player, order no rx levitra and I asked him why he wasn't touring himself.Â Â
He replied that he had for a brief time attempted to make it on the circuit. However, order no rx levitra for him to be able to actually "make it"Â (ie make a living I'm assuming) in the tennis world, order no rx levitra one either has to have unlimited funds to reach the necessary levels, order no rx levitra or know someone who does have funding and is willing to sponsor them. That seems to be the bottom line.Â Â
Obviously this is true in other sports.Â
Horses have always been a love of mine and I've ridden all my life. The level of money to even ride for pleasure today has become so expensive I can't imagine how children who don't have wealthy parents have an opportunity to engage in something that meant the world to me as a kid.Â Â
A few years back I leased an Arabian horse in an exclusive area of Los Angeles. Order no rx levitra Â I was immersed in a world of tremendous money, order no rx levitra tremendously valuable horses and tremendous exclusivity. Some of the horses that were being ridden by very young kids were worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. I wonder how does that compute to a child? In reality it doesn't. However I would imagine it does to parents who perhaps want their child to win at all costs. Order no rx levitra Â A friend of mine's daughter is an exceptional, order no rx levitra gifted jumper. So much so, order no rx levitra that although she had her own horse, order no rx levitra a talented Thoroughbred, order no rx levitra very wealthy individuals also wanted her to show their horses for them. That's how good she is. She often placed at the highest levels. Even though her talent was obvious, order no rx levitra not to mention her tremendous ability with horses, order no rx levitra she eventually became disillusioned and stressed out from the pressure of simply trying to play on the same, order no rx levitra very unequal playing field as those with vast bank accounts. That doesn't address the pervasively cut throat atmosphere which often comes in such arenas, order no rx levitra for lack of a better term.Â
The world of olympic sports have become incredibly driven by the monetary issue. That may be obvious to some, order no rx levitra but when I think back to the Bonnie Blairs and Dan Jansen's of the world, order no rx levitra I can't help but conclude things have increasingly gotten worse for the talented young kids trying to compete and/or perhaps more importantly enjoy their sport and their talent to the fullest these days. Perhaps I should remember as well, order no rx levitra and remind others of the Tonya Harding and the Nancy Kerrigan debacle. One can look at those two young skaters, order no rx levitraÂ consider their backgrounds and wonder if somehow a monetary component combined with the tremendous competitive atmosphere along with its own culture of elitism didn't fuel such a terrible event. But I digress. Order no rx levitra
With money dictating who gets to play in the game of sports, order no rx levitra professional life, order no rx levitra and just life itself, order no rx levitraÂ I have to wonder what's being sacrificed in the process?Â How many talented, order no rx levitra less wealthy, order no rx levitra even less competitive individuals are overlooked, order no rx levitra disregarded and/or simply overrun by those who happen to either come from wealth or are rich themselves? Conversely, order no rx levitra how many less talented but more monetarily financed and positioned individuals achieve positions they don't necessarily deserve, order no rx levitra or deserve at the level they've been given? Does the reality that our tax funds and government reward those already wealthy with more wealth and entitlement, order no rx levitra help our society as a whole? Â On a deeper level, order no rx levitra how much integrity, order no rx levitra honesty, order no rx levitra loyalty and morality is lost in the world of monetary value as well?
Seems today, order no rx levitra that if one wants to pursue something they loveÂ (that we may or may not have true talent in, order no rx levitra but is loved nevertheless), order no rx levitra one has to have almost unlimited funds and unlimited time with which to do it. Certainly there are exceptions, order no rx levitra but I wonder about the creativity, order no rx levitra the talent, order no rx levitra the uniqueness potentially lost by allowing money to dictate who is allowed to play, order no rx levitra moreover who 'succeeds' and who doesn't. I don't know exactly where I'm going with this, order no rx levitra other than simply to think out loud.Â Â Â Or more appropriately write out loud. Order no rx levitra
I hope I'm not being overly cynical, order no rx levitra however, order no rx levitra is it cynical to look at situations and wonder how they work, order no rx levitra or may not work as the situation may be? Or perhaps work much better for some than for others? If this is the reality, order no rx levitra that you have to pay to play, order no rx levitra how does this coincide with the so-called "American dream"? If these are the rules, order no rx levitra that there really are no rules, order no rx levitra why do we teach our children such myths like 'fairness', order no rx levitra 'goodness' and 'loyalty'? Doesn't that seem like a pretty big set up? Is it because of the overall, order no rx levitra imbalanced monetary system, order no rx levitra we now seem to have such an influx of individuals with moral compasses like Tonya Harding skating around us?Â Â
In the world of education, order no rx levitra it's pay to play as well. Or actually, order no rx levitra pay to learn. Some of my friends are now spending as much, order no rx levitra (if not more) for their child's elementary/grade school education than I did for my college education. And I went to a private school which was by no means inexpensive.Â
On yet another topic:Â I went to Malibu the other day with a friend. As we were driving home I noticed a very exclusive Mobile Home park located not far off the Malibu beach, order no rx levitra however certainly not located in obvious "view" of ongoing traffic.Â Â Â It made me remember an acquaintance/friend ( mutual friends) I knew who happened to live in a very cool 'trailor' park off the coast as well.Â Â I remember thinking how creative she had been with her limited space and what a lovely home she had made for herself.Â Â
I haven't kept up with her, order no rx levitra but the last thing I do remember is hearing the news that she and others were 'relocated' to another area when the park was also relocated. Can we assume that those with more money and power had the influence to have them 'relocated'? I can't help but then remember all the Native Americans who were "relocated" as well. But I digress yet again. I probably shouldn't mention all the foreclosures....and guess who will pay the bill for all the banking "failures"?Â Â
What an interesting place and time we live.Â Â If 'interesting' is the word.Â Â
From wallets to sports to trailor parks, order no rx levitra and as my mind travels through what I'm seeing these days, order no rx levitra the issue of money remains the core, order no rx levitra prevelant, order no rx levitra powerful force in our lives.Â Â
It has the power to give, order no rx levitra and the power to take away.Â Â Â
I have to wonder what would our lives be like if we weren't all ruled by money? What would life actually be like if we weren't ruled by pieces of paper? If instead our lives were valued by valuing others as much as we do ourselves, order no rx levitra appreciating nature and all it gives us, order no rx levitra and the incredible miracle of life itself. Okay that sounds stupid. But why in the world does it sound stupid when it's true?
As John Lennon sang, order no rx levitra "Imagine". As cynical as this post may sound, order no rx levitra I don't think we can begin to imagine the possibilities of what we can become, order no rx levitra until we address the reality of what is. Can we not conjure the courage we use for ourselves and our own solitary visions of success, order no rx levitra to become more innovative to create ways to counter the media machine which promotes consumption and greed that is killing us all? Â Can we work together to come up with better and more meaningful solutions on how to live and appreciate what really means the most to us in life? Can we shelve the religion and dogma that needlessly divides and deters us from appreciating, order no rx levitra respecting and ultimately enjoying each others gifts, order no rx levitra skills, order no rx levitra and moreover, order no rx levitra company? More importantly, order no rx levitra can we grant more power to each other as individuals, order no rx levitra and grant less to a monetary system that seems to keep us in competition with each other where we might otherwise connect as human beings walking on the same road of life? Am I that much of an idealist that I believe we can, order no rx levitra and we must, order no rx levitraÂ build a world that respects and appreciates each other along with appreciating the miracle of nature. Order no rx levitra Â Because nature truly is a miracle And as disconnected as we may have become, order no rx levitra we are all still a part of nature. Order no rx levitra Do it for your kids. Do it for your grand kids. Do it for the animals. Do it because its the right thing to do. Order no rx levitra
