Walking Day

April 5, 2017

National Walking Day

National Walking Day falls on the first Wednesday of April.
Friedrich Nietzsche said, "All truly great thoughts are conceived by walking."

Walking along a pier in Brooklyn - Waiting for my "ship" to come in.

Nietzsche connects for me through Thus Spoke Zarathustra (Z)
which goes to 2001: A Space Odyssey (film).

Walk the walk - Talk the talk

Talking ... people don't really talk anymore ... they text, tweet, or snap (chat).

Trump did a whole lot of talking on the campaign trail. His "talk" "tweets" make matters worse each day. I don't think anybody believes he is prepared to handle a nuclear situation - or just about anything else.

Let's look at North Korea then and now. During the Korean War in the 1950s I was a little girl in elementary school. I remember the children having dog-tags and shelter drills in which a siren would go off and we would hide under our desks until signaled to come out. People would talk about the world ending but I did not see it. I could envision the time when I would be a woman and Korea would become an issue again. Segway to 2017 ... The situation with North Korea, and its increasing capabilities of attacking its neighbors and mainland US, increase every day. You may be processing this as another global situation that will resolve itself in the endless dramas that face us personally and as a nation, but you need to pay attention. North Korea should not be taken lightly especially if you live on the West Coast.

Cyber wars will determine the fate of more than you know, but then again we are nothing more than characters in a cyber simulation ... as the game changes from minute to minute.
