from time to time

one moves.
sometimes on,
other times off.
but it is always best to keep moving i think,
although there is much to be said for stillness.
happy new year.

Well said

"The tools of conquest do not necessarily come with bombs and explosions and fallout. There are weapons that are simply thoughts, attitudes, prejudices, to be found only in the minds of men.

Rod Serling, from 1960-something

So true...

A bore is a man who deprives you of solitude without providing you with company.
