Remember Carl Sagan...?


Perhaps we should revisit him and listen again to his magical way of putting things.

Most of what he describes is becoming more true as we progress daily, especially in talking about the delicate balance of technology and the dangers that come with all the strides forward we make!

He was a brilliant man and I believe that he may have sensed much of what we are going through, and are going to go through.



Maybe we need another man like Sagan around again! Sure couldn't hurt!

Coffee on the patio this morning. That OK with you, my friend?

Thanks for the Carl link. I had forgotten a lot about him and had to go Google him, Learned a lot. For example I thought he was just a Sc-Fi writer!! Interesting!!

Didn't do coffee on my porch/patio this morning.. Bit windy..

Hey JoJo...
A pretty amazing guy for sure! I love the ay that he puts things, and seems to have a great vision of where man is and where he is going.

I used to really enjoy watching him a lot!

Glad it's pleasant where you are...and glad you could come by today, Sweetie!


Hey Ben...
Pretty smart fellow, no doubt! I think he was a great writer as well. Pretty talented man.

Thanks for coming by today, buddy!

A wise man and I do think we need another one too! We are trying to be gods and already a scientist has created life, that can only end in horror I´m afraid.
Take care now!

Hey Christer...
I'm afraid the Ramifications of this discovery won't be felt for a while, but I shudder to think about what could happen if it isn't kept in check properly.

somethings are best left alone, I think!

Thanks for the visit today!

A beautiful presentation. I think you are as good a writer as he...you just sell yourself short.I still say you should publish your work. Start with your blogs... as short stories, for instnace.
Am I right readers??
Love you, Bubba.
