Too Many People



  1. There are too many poor people in this world.
  2. There are too many people with physical and mental challenges.
  3. There are too many ignored artists.
  4. There are too many parent-less children.
  5. There are too many homeless people.
  6. There are too many billionaires.
  7. There are too many obese people.
  8. There are too many couples searching for children.
  9. There are too many underpaid hard workers.
  10. There are too many people who do not like their reflection in the mirror.
  11. There are too many people who call names instead of suggest specific plans and ideas.
  12. There are too many people waiting in line for the next best thing. (photo)
  13. There are too many people staying at Yellowstone in August!!
(The black arrow in the photo above points to the guard who was letting people into the Apple store very slowly this past December as they waited to spend money.  #11 is what I gathered from my painful watching of CPAC as I tried hard to understand their ideas.  #13 is about my plans to share the geological west with grandson this summer and being forcedto stay in a much more expensive room!  I am guessing that you think there are too many people of some sort or other.)

An interesting list. Yes, too many artists are ignored.

Olga said...

Some would say too many people, period.

Celia said...

Yes to a too crowded Yellowstone, and definitely too many artists are ignored. Too many cities without adequate public transportation, coupled with too many cars with just one person in them.

Yellowstone is great but we had to book it months ago to get anywhere for Old Faithful Inn; so if you got it better than that, you were lucky. Limited space and a lot of tours from around the world explains some of this. It is worth it though as it's wonderful. We'll be there in early July

There were too many people at the mall on a rainy Saturday night. Ugh. Why was I there anyway?
40,000 was not too many people at the Sounders match.
Mixed bag.

There are too many people who tell us they know it all and surprisingly, the same number who really don't know what they are talking about. Some of them attended the CPAC meeting along with a governor who claimed he did not know about a bridge that was blocked.

I've been in Yellowstone in June and July - there are too many people there then, too!

Hopefully there are just enough people to make certain there are too many people who truly care about others.

Yellowstone - don't stay at Old Faithful. Far too filled with tourists. There are other lodges - one on Yellowstone Lake - that proffer a much better experience. Great restaurant right on the water. Also offered a good route down to Grand Teton and Jackson Hole. Beautiful place - all of it.

At one point or another, we all fit into a category of "too many."

I consider this a poem, and there are never too many poems.

That pic in front of the Apple Store is interesting. I'd never thought about limiting the number of people in a store -- makes sense, though.

There are too many demanding a handout instead of a hand up.

RYN: Nope that means I am at risk. Then again, they used drawings of the four folks to identify, and I knew the men but not the women. And too, I cannot get up from the floor without using my hands. I could when I was 18.

Yet if we become LESS poor, less physical or mental, less ignored, less parentless, less homeless, less obese, less etc., etc., we will still be more people and that will still mean more people in Yellowstone in August.

I remember when my kids were little I watched a friend allow her baby to be passed round and round from adult to adult whenever she was in a large group. Over protective and probably worried about germs, I asked her about this. Her reply which I have never forgotten: "There can never be too many people in my child's life. I want her to get used to feeling love and acceptance beyond her family at home."

The world can be a strange place... sometimes.
