“NO ONE HAD MORE FUN THAN I”
“No one had more fun than I”… Not sure how to take that one.. At first I wanted to do research on Mr. Jones, the inscription, and his memorial; find out what those words meant to him, but as quick as that thought rose, I dismissed it.. I don’t want to know what those words meant to him.. Anyways, it’s not the saying that lured me to this memorial. It was because it was a rock. A boulder. There are a few memorials along neighborhood street and Minot beach seawall… all benches except this one… A boulder and a clearing….. and for some reason, unknown to me, It’s footing stirred the feelings of why I started the Sunrise Project.. But why the stirring? … maybe it’s because I like sitting on rocks more than benches or that it’s more connected to the surrounding….I don’t know.. but I know its simple….Maybe that’s how his life was. It wasn’t about the toys but the experience, not about who he knew but how he spent time with family and friends. But then his saying throws me off..It can’t always be fun, I mean he was old enough to have served in WWII…we all have to have those moments; those minutes, days, months or maybe years of feelings that I would not categorize as fun.. maybe it’s better put “No one was more accepting than I”… That would make for a good life… Maybe that’s it..
What ever the reason….I brought my own to the rock and for that I thank you Mr. Jones.
