FIVE DIAMOND ATTITUDE: WORK IN PROGRESS

 

FIVE DIAMOND ATTITUDE

 

Ultimate luxury, like crack, coke, meth, heroin, oxy, opioids in general, and cigarettes, is a hard habit to kick.

 

I’ve worn this wristband for three weeks as a reminder of ultimate luxury, and clever marketing. It reminds me to put things back where I found them in their original luxury, and find new value.

 

Finding new value in a five diamond attitude? That’s the work in progress from the title.

 

I found For Whom The Bell Tolls at a Washington coast yard sale after my sister’s wedding. The old book scout saw the first edition mark and coughed up $2.

 

With an original dust cover it’s worth more than I paid, but it’s also Ernest Hemingway, Papa, The Old Man. Well, I’m older than him now, not that it matters, and I still haven’t finished Bells.

 

It’s awful, like reading the Bible in earlier versions before it was dumbed down for readers like me. I need Hemingway dumbed down, too? Maybe.

If you ever decide to play guitar, or learn to play, use the best guitar you can find. You deserve the luxury of a fine musical instrument.

 

Otherwise you end up with bad wood, weak tuners, and you suck worse every time you give it a shot. Go ahead and blame the guitar, or get a good one to begin with. They both look fine in the corner, but one will feel fine in your hands, even luxurious.

What feels more luxurious than pearls and gold?

What is ultimate luxury in every day life? Appreciating what you’ve got, working toward what you’d like, staying on track. Enjoy what doesn’t last and make it better.

 

Music? Flowers? Birds? Difficult authors?

 

A five diamond attitude isn’t about the finer things in life, but developing a finer eye for the normal things.

 

Wearing the ultimate luxury wristband until it rots off like a Hell’s Angel initiation vest? That’s the plan. Now when I check the time it’s always five diamond attitude time.

 

Cheers!

Put your best foot, or hand, forward and fill it with what makes you, and those you care about, happy.
