I believe I’m becoming increasingly nostalgic for the days when the threat of mutually assured destruction loomed over us like a magnificent, burning giant ready to hold us close, instantly smothering us in his warm embrace. Maybe it’s the simplicity I miss, or the clarity; both probably illusory. Or maybe it’s the potential quick end to everything as opposed to the slow decay that sometimes seems to be creeping up on us all. Come to think of it, maybe that’s why zombies are so popular these days, that fear of everything slowly dying, gradually coming apart. Anyway, they were interesting times, but so are these. Mostly, I hope we manage to keep the bees.
