Craig Rhodes has designed some of the finest zoos in the world and helped raise two of the coolest kids I know. In response to being harassed for his "Three Things" for entirely too long, he gives us this:
These three things as adapted by Craig Rhodes from Gary Rossington and Ronnie VanZant’s song “Simple Man”

Don’t Live too fast
Take your time
Troubles will come and they will pass.
you'll find love, and don't forget
there is Someone up above.
Forget your lust for the rich man’s gold
All that you need, is in your soul,
And you can do this if you try.
All that I want for you
Is to be satisfied.

Follow your heart and Lord, and nothing else
Don't you worry... you'll find yourself.
And you can do this if you try.
All that I want for you
Is to be satisfied.

Who you is?

My photo

I love raindrops on roses and whatnot, but even more than that I totally dig finding dollars in clothes I haven't worn in ages, live music, social networking and search engine optimization, research,, homemade beer, home grown stuff, writing, talking, laughing, green movements, debate, dialog, dumpster diving, time travel, time-out chairs, psychology, meals that last for hours, pranks, astral projection, meaningful lives, the kindness of strangers, trains, trucks and tractors, cowboys, horses, deer, eagles, random occurrences, modern tragedies, small appliances, good socks and sturdy shoes, shiny objects, painting, playing stringed instruments and singing harmony, pulling perfect feather pillows out of the freezer on hot and humid Kansas summer nights, rodeos and county fairs, brokers, organics and authenticity, my kids, their kids and my huge extended family. I am a hugger and I probably laugh AND talk way too much.
