I can't stop daydreaming about going up there one day — inside the open Cupola, the huge window installed in Tranquility of ISS.
“It is an evocative image not easily forgotten.” He noted, “The red arc ominously takes the shape of a sickle.” The streets were mostly empty. I stopped to photograph some settlers marking the Jewish holiday of Purim. They were passing around a bottle of wine, toasting the holiday, nothing out of the ordinary.

Too many people, when asked for their opinion, dissemble. Instead of giving an opinion, they push back. They ask; What do you think? Did you do any research? Etc. This is the work of the resistance.

When I ask you for your opinion I'm not asking you for the right answer. I'm asking you for your opinion.
