Let's see, where is that book? It was here a moment ago, just before the bomb fell...


Waiting

oh that's painful...as if a bonfire burning freedom... with humor you make a way of opening doors... do you think with words and actions we could change a world

Phil~this is a provocative and thoughtful post. I am reminded of an old twilight zone in which the world had ended as a result of the bomb, and a lone elderly man who loved to read and had locked himself in a bank vault for safety, came out overjoyed, believing that he would have all the books in the world to himself. However, just when he sat down to begin, his glasses dropped and broke and there was no one left to help him. The deep irony and sadness of his isolated self-interest rather than his concern for the world around him was a message in itself. Great post!
Peace,
Noelle

Dramatic yet melancholy. Thanks for this.

All the best, Boonie

Between 451 and 911, we are pretty well done for. Chilling to see the remnants of optimism so starkly out of place.

Dark humor well served
Gravy for a bitter meal
Hard, our daily bread

Thank you!
