17-03-15 WPC Atop The Border of the United Mexican States and the USA

The photo challenge this week is WPC-Atop.

This shot is from a plane as we crossed the border back into the USA (formerly the home of the brave, now apparently the home of the terrified). For those who believe in the efficacy of walls, this might be a bit distressing.

For the rest of us, I hope you find it liberating.

Question:
“Fearless Fantasies

How would your life be different if you were incapable of feeling fear? Would your life be better or worse than it is now?”

Answer: I would be dead. Therefore my life would not be.

11-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Achievement

Achievement –

When I think about achievements I try to avoid sports. Ripken and The Iron Horse, Hank and The Babe, Roger Bannister, Martina and Chris, Serena, Russell and Chamberlain, Magic and Bird, Michael, etc. all did remarkable things but others have achieved so much more.

Salk, Sabin, Newton, Einstein, Ptomely, Pythagoras, and so many more whose names I don’t know.

However, for me, the most remarkable achievement in my lifetime is one we, the USA, threw away, as we became the nasty, cramped, and fearful country we are today. We came, we saw, we ran home and hid.

I don’t get it and never will.
