Can you imagine we are like mini time machines? From the day we were born to now, we have been recording all the events in our life seen through our perspective..and there are millions of us. I've watched clear blue skies turn dingy, I've seen countless sunrises and sunsets and only now do I marvel at the immensity of the sun relative to Earth and how puny it is in relation to other Giant Suns and the universe! I remember seeing my first punch-card that fed into a microprocessor that gave commands to a machine through electric pulses that were defined by o and 1 and caused it to perform tricks. Watched it become giant computers that took up whole floors and buildings that now sit on our desktops or laps. Watched men travel on a metal tube out to space and lived vicariously through their eyes in space. Watched the metal tube evolve into the shuttle and a space station and space telescopes to let us better see the universe. Got closer to our own planets by way of a voyager that left our solar system in search of more knowledge. Watched wars come and go and come again. Watched an empire crumble and greedy men refusing to relinquish power. Watched my children grow and my skin get etched with lines resembling the very face of our world. Watched 2 giant buildings taken down by 2 giant planes and the subsequent awakening of a huge military complex to take down the wrong (just my opinion) perpetrators. Watched countless trees bloom and sadly seen many trees killed and chopped down in the name of progress or just cuz it got in the way somehow. I've watched cars go from almost jalopies to full blown metal monsters eating up resources to fuel their hunger and belching out smoky pollutants all in the chase for power and fame! Watched these same monsters scaled down to efficiency while the thirst is now a craving from an addiction sucking the blood from the very Earth we live on. I've seen the hope in the eyes of those trying to hold the owners of the industrial world to account to preserve what is left. I just read yesterday an article regarding a little frog that is now extinct and may never be seen again. Seems it always starts with the small things. Kinda like when you remember an old friend as you ponder whatever happened to them. I've watched religion evolve or devolve (depending on point view, of course) from a homespun Sunday get together with rip-roaring hoedowns or good ole Sunday socials to MEGA-churches siphoning money from the very people they were meant to serve and is now being raised up in praise while God looks down in wonder at what has been done in His name. I've watched comic books go from a kids dream of the next issue to see what our protagonist will do now into multiverses of multi-millionaires helping us live our imaginations on a big screen. I've watched drive-in theaters disappear into the very mists of time and our 13inch turquoise and beige tv with rabbit ear antennae (and bad reception..lol) turn into a 75inch glamorous window into the world and the very minds of creators of worlds we can never imagine ourselves. I've watched so many books become movies and so many just a drop in the dustbin of history, And all this is recorded in this slush called a brain that can't be downloaded into a computer unless I do it manually, as I am now. We are just time machines recording our lives but if you share with me, I will share with you and drink a toast to wonders you have seen. Thank you!

This is the Apex
I think we all instinctively know that the time is now. That the war raging against Ukraine from Putin and his regime, is the ultimate test of humanity's evolution. We are at the tipping point, in which what we do now as a collective whole will define the world we live in for generations to come. If we don't successfully stop this now, we are marching humanity into a very real possibility of a third world war, where power hungry souls who believe in their invincibility play a very dangerous game of nuclear tic tac toe.
In a time too fast forwarded of itself and lacking any conclusive evidence of pure perception, logic, or good judgment. A world where dysfunction and general malpractice is exceedingly normalized in entertainment, media, and other various forms of social treatise. Quite the contrary, our supplanted freedom, to summarize it briefly, a matter of opinion. More personal statements of belief and practice than dogma. Overtly, malnourished and ambiguous ideology, essentially, void of any real resolution and without lasting effect on today's controversial subjects discerning respect, compassion, and inclusivity of all walks of life.
