Dressed in Motley Camouflage

~~~~~ Dressed in motley camouflage, balanced on a cusp of time, where we may tip one way or the other. Fall back to fight our dirty wars, or create a new world sublime, where all live in peace together. No, conflict will not end when we put away our fatal toys; we’ll argue, contest in […]

The Same Advice

~~~~~ The time is now, or so they say, It’s time for us to seize the day. Carpe diem is urged on humans. What happened to the Romans?

Captured in and by the lenses of CCTV cameras. Do not stare nor act furtive, collar upturned, hide, Do not ever let them suspect what lurks inside. Somewhere, […]
