The December 1 Sunday Morning Sidewalk

SUNDAY MORNING SIDEWALK, DECEMBER 2013

I had a brief conversation with my wife yesterday.. we pondered our existence, and wondered if 'time' is really going as fast as we perceive it. My only argument was that the major earthquakes on this planet over the past decade did speed us up fractions of a millisecond--that was scientifically proven. Maybe that slight alteration in time does something to us over time.. maybe it in fact does make us feel that the passage of time--and in essence our trek around the sun--is changed.
Or..
It's because we have a child, and now a dog, and a rush of life with work and few pleasure. Could it be the plague of parents--the idea that you're watching your child grow too fast and also facing your own eventual 'ending'? It's already December.

And as long as my fate continues to allow me to exist, expect some Christmas related material this month and later as we get close to 2014, there will be an annual year in review offered us by this website for your pleasure or displeasure.

In the mean time, some news is worth offering.

HEATHER WADING INTO DANGER: ART BELL RESPONDS

Heather Wade announced that she was going to go to Area 51 this coming June.. People have been responding fast and furious, with some stating she is in danger of being arrested--or even killed!

Talk show legend and original MIDNIGHT IN THE DESERT host Art Bell is responding in kind to people on Facebook..

What Heather is doing is a brave act. For all my life people have talked Disclosure and talked and talked. I have no illusion that she will get to any Alien anything but at least she feels the need to do something, anything to move beyond talk and raise the stakes in trying to get to the truth. If we have been visited (and I believe we have) we have a right to know. It seems to me we have a moral right to know, will it change people’s basic faith? Not any more than the Pope suddenly being quoted as saying “There is no Hell”. We have a right to know, she is right and if a act of Civil Disobedience helps I am all for it.
On acts of civil disobedience..

Not much has ever happened in Amer…

Happy solstice
