Push the Pause Button



Here in North America/U.S.A. at the end of this week we are celebrating our independence...which some of us see as more than just a revolt from the "Monarchy" and an excuse to eat BBQ and drink beer and watch fireworks.

Some of us see this as the pattern that is currently repeating itself in Egypt.  Good luck to all those Egyptians as they really deserve this and I hope their road is less rocky.

Take some time, no matter what country you live in, and spend a peaceful day being thankful that the earth has survived mankind...for now.

I'll be going to tai-chi. Our master Pong says he's not cancelling the day. It will be a nice and peaceful way to celebrate the holiday. :-)

There certainly are some worries on the horizon. On the other hand we do have things we can celebrate.

Great sentiments. Let's hope...

Independence is a good thing, but the road that leads there is so often fraught with contention that the victory is hollow. Still, we like to think of ourselves as free and that's half the battle.

Yes, and may it survive us a lot longer -- and all come to have freedom someday.

We don't celebrate this in the UK, for some reason ;) I hope you had a wonderful and relaxing day.
