Let us take a magical journey inside the tote pump and see where that takes us. It is a strange journey and one that most people find too disturbing to pursue. It is strange and disturbing because it effectively upends the total conception of reality and people generally do not like their conception of reality to be upended. It is hard enough to make one’s way in reality. No one wants to hear that the very effort to make one’s way is not the main point. But rather the main point is to see through the reality of reality.
SEEING THROUGH THE REALITY OF THE TOTE PUMP
When one takes on this magical journey of which I speak one must give up on his or her view of the world. Why else do monks retreat into monasteries? Why else do hermits retreat into the desert? It is because they are doing the hard work of shrugging off the mantel of the world and setting to work on seeing through it to its very essence. This cannot be done when the burdens of the world are distracting you on a daily basis. Or perhaps it cannot be easily done or accomplished.
Taking the magic journey requires a conviction that the truth is more important than living comfortably. Now it is possible to live comfortably and take the magic journey although it is highly unlikely. It is so unlikely that it is effectively impossible. For this reason in order to accomplish this most heavy of tasks it requires a certain sense of sacrifice. It requires a certain sense of dedication towards the goal of accomplishing that which could be accomplished when the magical journey has reached its logical end. And who can say where the journey will take us ultimately. But we take it anyway.
One has not truly lived unless he or she has experienced the magic golf carts south Florida makes appear. This can happen anywhere on the peninsula all the way from Miami to Port Charlotte. One minute there is no golf cart and the next minute a golf cart appears almost like magic. As a small child I remember quite fondly how David Copperfield made the Statue of Liberty disappear. At the time it seemed like an amazing feat to perform. It still does. Although I recently heard a podcast of “This American Life” where it was suggested that the way this happened was the observing audience sat on a revolving stage.
MAGIC GOLF CARTS SOUTH FLORIDA AND PORT CHARLOTTE
It seems to me that if the audience sat on a revolving stage they would have felt it move. I suppose it is possible that the stage rotated so smoothly the audience could not perceive it. I find this hard to believe however. The event was fully televised and many members of the audience were interviewed prior to the disappearance and after the disappearance. None of them expressed that they felt the stage rotate and all seemed to be impressed by the performance.
Now it is perfectly conceivable that the audience members were actors or they were paid to react in the way they did. I suppose we must address the fact as to whether magic of this kind in fact exists. We know that golf carts magically appear in south Florida. On the other hand there may be a scientific and material explanation for these events as well. A wise man once said something along the lines of an advanced technology appears to be magic to those who do not understand the technology. So maybe this applies to what I have been discussing.
Exterior Paint Magic
Thinking of selling your house this season? This is a daunting task, but with a little know how, you can get the most money for your house. The first thing you need to think about it curb appeal. How does your house look from the street? Many buyers will walk away at first sight if your house is not a shining, inviting and picturesque dwelling. Curb appeal has to do with landscaping and the overall look of the house. If your house has peeling paint, or is painted an unseemly color, you are probably not going to attract very many buyers. Enlisting the help of a fantastic roofing contractor in Park City is a good way to start increasing the value of your home, before you put it on the market.
Traditional Paint Jobs
The good old stand by is a warm beige color with bright white trim. A natural looking door completes this effect. This color scheme is easy on the eyes, and helps a home blend into any neighborhood. If you really need a splash of color add a little decorative trim somewhere but not too much. Additional outdoor light fixtures will also help your curb appeal in a conservative way.
Standing Out Just A Little
For a modern and artistic look in a conservative and quiet neighborhood, try varying the shades of one color. Use the lightest variant for the house color, a darker version for the trim and a complementary color for the door.
Modern And Exciting
If your neighborhood is a few clicks away from the standard cookie cutter suburban scene, go ahead and try this color scheme on for size. A stark white house color with white trim. However, paint your shutters grey, lavender, or blue, and give the door a fresh color pop. Make sure the door is complementary to the shutter color however. We can save the outrageous paint jobs for the outrageous neighborhoods.
