SG-U 640x480

Let Me Know When We Get There…

Fink’s “Sort Of Revolution” is one of those songs that just seems to go well with situations of high anxiety and anticipation. I’ve posted shortened versions of it myself, in SG-U: A New Metaphor For The Human Condition? and in Spinning Our Wheels On Spaceship Earth, and it was used again to close out last week’s episode of The Tomorrow People (which I finally got around to watching last night, before laying down for another night of restless sleep).

Thanks For Turning My Frowns Upside Down!

You know, after doing this blogging thing for four years, I can honestly say that I feel more comfortable with this “virtual” community than with just about any “real” community I’ve ever been a part of.
