“Mary Fallon (governor of Oklahoma) has done more to damage this state in her tenure than I thought possible. We have a $1 billion deficit and she signs a tax cut for the top one percent. Where’s the compassion? The Republicans don’t want less government; they just don’t want to pay for it.

“Tomorrow we will live like we do now, but more connected, more densely, and further away than ever before. That last part sounds like an oxymoron because it partly is.  I believe in the dynamism of human exploration. While the earth is yet to be 100% explored, I’m completely excited about human space exploration and it’s possibilities. And I think it will help shape how We will live tomorrow in a significant manner.  We will live here on Earth, on the Moon and on Mars within my lifetime, all in some form of connectivity with the rest of humanity as we know it.

“If cooler heads prevail, we will live simpler and wiser with a better appreciation of our humble Blue Dot and those who inhabit it with us.

“We will live the same, but different—just as those have lived before us over the last two hundred thousand years; same—but different. For better or for worse.”

Clayton Smith. Mechanical Engineering student, Norman, OK

About paulefallon

Greetings reader. I am a writer, architect, cyclist and father from Cambridge, MA. My primary blog, theawkwardpose.com is an archive of all my published writing. The title refers to a sequence of three yoga positions that increase focus and build strength by shifting the body’s center of gravity. The objective is balance without stability. My writing addresses opposing tension in our world, and my attempt to find balance through understanding that opposition. During 2015-2106 I am cycling through all 48 mainland United States and asking the question "How will we live tomorrow?" That journey is chronicled in a dedicated blog, www.howwillwelivetomorrw.com, that includes personal writing related to my adventure as well as others' responses to my question. Thank you for visiting.
