Last night I received an email from a friend that made me cry. His partner and love of his life past away 4 days earlier, and only now – after the funeral, he was sharing it with friends that are living abroad. He sent the following poem in his email, and I decided to post it on totally-useless.com for all those that have not read it as, yet.
After receiving two emails for copyright infringement I was forced to remove The Dash poem from this post. And in my eyes the accusations of copyright infringements are completely and totally useless, and out of place – but so be it.
The Dash poem has touched the lives of so many people, and perhaps it will touch yours too, and make you appreciate more your own dash… See here The Dash Movie
After watching the Turkish movie on the TV news, taken in real time on the flotilla attacked by the Israeli’s – I felt so sorry and outraged for all these people trying to bring aid and goods in Gaza and died for it. Such an unnecessary violence against what? While 80% of the populace in Gaza rely on international help for everything, and are uneployed? Than I read the Yahoo News article in regards, and saw how many comments were left. One of these comments I found very appropriate and well said:
“If everyone cared, no body cried. If everyone loved and nobody lied. If everyone shared and swallowed their pride, we see the day nobody died” If only the whole world worked like that…
The sound of the cup beat sounds rather cool, so – it isn’t totally useless after all 😉
Imagine being part of a band and everyone is using only kitchen supplies to create some cool music?

I stumbled on a Yahoo News story tonight about Karl Rebeder – a Millionaire – who gave all his money and properties to charities set up by himself. And you should go to read the post, and see the comments – many of which left me wondering again about our judgmental human nature – so totally useless… And how difficult it is for most to see the goodness in people when it’s due.
In all honesty – I’ve never seen money making anyone happy. However – the same is true for the statement he made to the Daily Telegraph:
“Money is counterproductive – it prevents happiness to come.”
I’ve always seen wealth and money as a way to be free and be able to live a satisfactory way of life. And this is different for everyone. Money cannot buy one a real love, nor happiness, or health. It could make life much easier than it is to live life while struggling to pay the bills and being unable to enjoy time with the people you love, and doing the things you love doing. I think, he meant to say that he is missing a “Real Purpose” in life that could make him happy, and that probably “less is more” for him at this stage of his life. Here you can read more about Karl Rebeder and this story.
Now I’d love to hear your opinion about this story, and do you agree with his statements. Stay always fabulous and happy!
