Big Guns

Watching Tuesday night’s NCIS, lots of blood and shooting and slit throats. Sunday night on Good Wife, big courtroom shooting (yeah, darn it, Will’s dead). Russian’s walking around borders of other people’s countries with lots of big guns, plane load of passengers down at the bottom of the sea and the Albuquerque cops are seriously out of control and they have power and they have lots of big guns just like the Russians. Pretty much blood and guts and guns wherever I turn. And I’m participating willingly with my corporate media masters as far as the two-dimensional gun battles go. Oh oh, commercial’s over; gotta make sure none of my favorite agents are gunned down. Only place that’s violence-free is my work where I spent today working on a sweet little newsletter packed with photos of art and artists and friends and teachers. So what’s a nice non-violent photo for today?

Norwegian Mountainside. Doesn't look anything like this but the photo didn't scan well so I fixed it.

  1. Perhaps the world is not as violent as we think it is. Perhaps we have some much access to news…that is all kinds of information, both filtered and unfiltered and it just seems like the violence is so much worse. Did I really live in a small town that was completely and totally safe to live in? Did you live in a totally safe environment in Minnesota? Sure you did. That has changed. Why I am not sure and can I do anything about it to make a difference. Yes there is more violence. I think I would like to spend part of my time someplace so different I did not have to hear about it. A country where I do not know the language…ignorance could indeed be bliss, ignorance of violence. My, you got me started. The photo, well, not sure about that.
