Here’s To A Better Day

“Don’t worry about the world coming to an end today. It’s already tomorrow in Australia.” –Charles M. Schulz

“The future ain’t what it used to be.” –Yogi Berra

“The present is a time of struggle; the future is ours.” –Che Guevara

“Optimism enables a man to claim the future for himself, and not to abandon it to his enemy.” –Dietrich Bonhoeffer

“Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings.” –John F. Kennedy

“It’s tough to make predictions, especially about the future.” –Yogi Berra

Just ask the poor Mayans. It looks as if they’re about to be seriously embarrassed. Or will we learn tomorrow that somebody forgot to factor in the precession of the equinoxes, or some leap seconds or something, and we still have the end to look forward to? What is this fascination with the end times, anyway? If you live in abject pain, fear and misery, it would make sense. But for those of us in relatively comfortable circumstances, it’s hard to understand. I’m perfectly willing to wait a little longer for the end of the world. Hell, I won’t mind missing it entirely. Am I the weird one? Or are too many folks just twisted?

About l. l. frederick

I'm pretty ordinary, so I find any number of things in the world interesting, among them: books, music, flowers, food, social justice, politics and (sometimes!) people. As for my writing, I've decided that I can be subtle and tasteful when our only problems are esthetic ones. Or when I'm dead, whichever comes first. In the meantime, read at your own risk.
