Seven Years

"We’re human beings, with the blood of a million savage years on our hands. But we can stop it. We can admit that we’re killers … but we’re not going to kill today.
That’s all it takes!
Knowing that we’re not going to kill today." *

-- Captain James T. Kirk

...And, as they say in recovery, tomorrow's not looking too likely either.

*We might, however, make grown men wear rubber galoshes on their heads.

See, the world would be such a better place if we all had to wear rubber galoshes on our heads. Who could do anything menacing without breaking down into gentle giggles? Roddenberry knew his stuff.

I concur with glee! Jeezuz and pigs in blankets with lipstick and old stinkin' fishies wrapped up in newspapers with molding, sodden chips, Fresca, you do know the way to shine the light into our gloomy, jaded hearts.

Loving U!

I can hear him saying that. Go, Kirk, go. Thanks for posting today.

Rubber galoshes, hm...

Glad you all liked it.
I didn't post it until early evening because I couldn't settle on what to say.

Perhpas I should send the galoshes-on-head peacekeeping idea to the Peace Studies folk in ...Uppsala, Sweden, I think it is?
