The Devil Came Down to Midland

Matthew 4:9 - And said to him, All these things will I give you, if you will fall down and worship me.

The devil himself came knocking at my door this morning.  He appeared as a head hunter for Wells Fargo Securities on my iPhone.

Long story short, I had huge money flashed in front of me if I would join corporate America again and be their bitch for 7 to 9 years.

No more free time, have to wear a suit, ditch the pick up truck, no more free time, no more multiple vacations, no time for chickens, horses, little boats, wife, Jeep, RVing, diving, golf, cooking, tailgating, road trips, all my clients would be theirs, and my time would be taken in exchange for riches.

No thanks. I wouldn’t even consider the negotiation session to discuss the details.  The guy asked if I heard what he was saying and he asked me to take down his name and number if I reconsidered.

No. I am a free man and wish to stay that way.

Damn it was a lot of money.

I close my eyes
Only for a moment and the moment's gone
All my dreams
Pass before my eyes a curiosity

Dust in the wind
All they are is dust in the wind

Same old song
Just a drop of water in an endless sea
All we do
Crumbles to the ground though we refuse to see

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind

Now don't hang on
Nothing lasts forever but the Earth and Sky
It slips away
And all your money won't another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind
Dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
Everything is dust in the wind
