Onward and upward

Sometimes, when you get older you get what Yogi Berra called the “dejá vu all over again” feeling while observing life and especially world affairs; a little like an usher in an all day movie theater might get… the moviegoers are glued to the screen to see if the hero gets the girl or the bad guy gets his just desserts, while you who have seen this film a dozen times or more before are pulling back curtains, opening doors and spraying air freshener… From Vietnam through Iraq and back to Iraq… from 1964 to 2014: 50 years of my life watching, the drip, drip, drip, of useless bloodshed, death and stupidity…

Perhaps the time has come to put on a saffron robe, take up a begging bowl and retire to a forest hermitage to contemplate my navel or maybe just take a big dose of fruit salts.
