The Egg

A wonderful short story from Andy Weir, The Egg, all summed up in this quote:

“Every time you victimized someone,” I said, “you were victimizing yourself. Every act of kindness you’ve done, you’ve done to yourself. Every happy and sad moment ever experienced by any human was, or will be, experienced by you.”

In less than 5 minutes you can be enlightened. A very real Golden Rule.

…The Stone Gods

Wow, Jeanette Winterson takes us on a roller coaster ride with The Stone Gods. Three interlinked stories that left me wanting just a little bit more, and keeps us guessing.

Winterson The Stone Gods

Dystopian sci-fi at it’s best, written in 2007, there is a fair amount of foreshadowing of our current detached political environment. There is also a stark warning of the effects of ignoring the environment.

“Human beings aren’t just in a mess, we are a mess. We have made every mistake, justified ourselves, and made the same mistakes again and again. It’s as though we are doomed to repetition.”

Sure there are awkward passages, and the transition between the three sections is a little difficult but the final tie-up makes it all worthwhile.

When you get a view like this an early start seems worthwhile.

Abandoned …

A quiet drive through the suburban Frankston can reveal a few unusual sights. But this takes the cake! I just hope that the current affairs shows don’t get hold of this story – Tiger lion’ around Frankston childcare centre.
