WRITTEN IN THE STARS



DEVOLUTION
The television shows me what the earth will do with the minor revision of Life after People. I think it an accurate portrayal of the earth reclaiming habitat destroyed for the comfort of men. What I do not understand is why then this is played on History and not Science Channel. If it were Life after Humanity the History Station would be proper placement of programming.

ALCATRAZ STATE OF MIND
Running from the rain never worked well for me. Seems no matter how much I twist and turn, if rain were fire, I’d every time get crisply burned. Escaping madness to survive is not as easy as running between tongues of flame; for it would appear no matter which way I die in the fire, insanity has arrived an hour afore my bier.

  1. From your two thoughts it would seem that it is madness to survive.

    1. Carleton we believe in self survival only because all of our live we are taught it is our strongest instinct. I believe we have been taught wrong. Our strongest instinct is to know love.

    1. Given the scenario Brian of a planet with no humans I think I would like to be a sequoia tree.

      Dead, viking funeral, OK as long as whoever shoots the arrow to set the pyre afire has a permit and a steady aim. Seriously though what difference does it make it's not like you'll be there to strike the match eh?

  3. I can just say this is good writing. Rain as fire is quite an image when keeping dry is the goal

    I don't know what's to become of me, mark. I'm at the least glad I have people to love and battles to wage

    Love

  5. I enjoyed that Life after people show. I'm a fan of post apocalyptic fiction anyway.

    1. Yep Charles post apocalyptic reality is a bit hard to bear, even if it doesn't touch me personally.

  6. Revisionist history? I wondered the same thing.

    Insanity gets around. It's quite amazing that way.

    1. Alice all history is revised as time goes on until we get to the point where the final revision is done because no one knows the truth anymore. Insanity is not a virus but it sure as hell travels fast.

  7. I can only imagine nature's huge sigh of relief when she gets to reclaim all the space we've filled with our junk.

    Yeah, I'm glad rain isn't fire or I'd be one scorched woman!

    1. I say 10,000 years to completely heal the planet to pre-human domination Talon.

      I think we all have little scorch marks and scars earned on our way through life.
