Pic of the day: Peasant woman eating, by Vincent Van Gogh
One wonders whether a generation that demands instant satisfaction of all its needs and instant solution of the world’s problems, to say the least will produce anything of lasting value. Such a generation, even when equipped with the most modern technology, will be essentially primitive — it will stand in awe of nature, and submit to the tutelage of medicine men.
Eric Hoffer, Reflections on the Human Condition (1973)
Just a single thought tonight, as I get ready to call it a night, as I begin to prepare to celebrate Christmas eve.
There are millions across the globe who will go to bed hungry tonight. 13% of the worlds population is under-nourished.
Be thankful you have what you do.
Enjoy your Christmas Eve.
That’s it from here, America. G’night.
