Kickass steps off the merry-go-round

Kickass, the doorstop dog, says that if you do not occasionally step off the merry-go-round and treat yourself to personal popcorn or cotton-candy inner consideration on a comfortable bench all by yourself somewhere in the shade of life, you run the risk of being trampled by the endless stampede of stupidity.

During that respite from the constant cacophony of utter absurdity at all levels of existence, it is necessary to use a plumbing analogy and flush your brain again and again, until there is a clean clarity to it that may hearken of long gone days when you were more your own person and not such a battered vehicle of vile and ignorant shouting by greedy, narcissistic voices coming from a hundred directions with a hundred different demands on your thinking.

It is not an easy thing to do—to rinse out the detritus of time, the worn and warped opinions, the nonsense of someone else’s sloppy conclusions, but it can be done and even in the trying there is inspiration and a refreshing ambition to return to knowing yourself and marking that precious territory as yours.
