The Cephalopod and I

Silently the cephalopod
somehow started shuddering
as something somewhere suffering
screamed out from someones sin.

And strangely, when I saw the sin
I also started struggling so,
to stifle my sensation
of a strangling sort of sound.

I, descending south and circling, seeking,
Swam to save the screaming something.
I searched, the sound was sickening;
Uncertain, stopped I, listening.

The source I sought. The cephalopod,
still shaking, swerved and suddenly
just stopped and swooned, I ascertained
The sound had ceased. I sobbed.

Sadly, solemnly, the squid and I,
together, side by side, swam home.

I started using this new font (Envy Code R) for programming because it is so awesomely good.

Horizon

I look up beyond the horizon,
I see not another world
I see not the foibles of my past,
But, I see the future,
full of brightness and hope,
And joy that will last.

Pic from the trip home.

We drove to Utah to visit my parents.

Eva navigated on the way home. (We got home safely.)

Seeking an alternate universe

Sometimes I think about the world we live in and wonder if there is an alternate universe similar to ours but with a few changes.

I dislike that in our universe there are people who fight about religion.
I dislike that in our universe there are people who are more driven by money than by forging families or protecting the environment.
I dislike that in our universe so many animals have to suffer by humans.
I dislike that in our universe smoking ever became popular.
I dislike that in our universe people can't get along based on things like the color of your skin.
I dislike that in our universe there are people who kidnap and/or molest children.
I dislike that in our universe teachers are paid so little money and recognition.
I dislike that in our universe Michael Jackson felt he had to change his face.
I dislike that in our universe people quibble and fight about who "owns" land.
I dislike that in our universe there are so many pointless lawsuits.
I dislike that in our universe the one software company who has a monopoly produces such junk.
I dislike that in our universe interest rates are so high.
I dislike that in our universe people kill other people.
I dislike that in our universe there are democrats and republicans.
I dislike that in our universe not everybody votes.
I dislike that in our universe women were ever called "the weaker sex" by men. Ughhh.
I dislike that in our universe there are people like Hitler.
I dislike that in our universe there are people who think it is a good idea to create computer viruses and send out worthless emails (junk email known as "spam").
I dislike that in our universe professional sports players are paid so much money.
I dislike that in our universe people ever made other people their slaves and thought it was okay.
I dislike that in our universe so many people drink alcohol and then hurt others.
I dislike that in our universe there are mothers and fathers who treat their children poorly.

Now, I know that sounds depressing.. well, it is!

I only wish that each person would make an effort to do something about this. We can't change the past, but the future is not written yet. I have full hope that one day we will rid ourselves of these things I dislike. You may say I am a dreamer...
