I Can't Sleep Tonight

I tried going to bed early tonight (Midnight is early for me these days!), and I just couldn’t get to sleep, thinking about what is going on in the world these days. I know that ‘man’ is still basically a primitive being, and that we’re still related to those cavemen who threw spears in one another’s backs (For god’s sake, a primitive woman was found murdered in the La Brea Tar Pits, and she was at least a thousand years old!), but aren’t we EVER going to evolve into beings that can just ‘get along’ with one another?... It’s a pitiful commentary when old ladies are x-rayed at airports to see if they have explosives implanted in their vaginas, don’t you think?

I’m REALLY getting tired of the ‘news’ being the same old news, about how ‘good evening’ isn’t one at all, and that we all have to fear some nutcase developing a bomb to eradicate life as we know it. You’d think that, by now, we’d have learned something from our predecessors.

WHO CARES what religious or political beliefs someone else has? We’re all probably wrong anyway…. and, about virtually everything.

I’m tired of ’living on the edge’, not that mankind hasn’t done it since ‘man’ first appeared on Earth. Sometimes I wish that we WOULD eradicate ourselves with one, huge nuclear holocaust and start over again… not that any of us would live to see a ‘new age’…. And if ‘man’ evolved again, it would probably be the same old sh*t.

But, the good news is that Mothers’ Day is coming up, and that some people will actually honour those that they love. I just wish that ‘love’ could extend far beyond groups, societies and cultures!

Sometimes I just can't sleep. How about you?

I think it will but not in this old system.

Hope that YOU get a good night;s rest!
