Serendipitous that I should get this invitation to start a word press blog, just as I thought of a line, while doing chi gung, that felt like it made a good title for a blog
So here we are. Putting chin to knee. Jaw to leg.
Thinking of the image I saw today in an old copy of the Digger Papers, a 1965 or so hippie broadside newprint folio, which reproduces a woodcut with the caption carved in in all caps, ” THE END OF THE WAR,” and the image is of Ho Chi Minh looking of into a distant future with a wise and inscrutable look, while Johnson is resting his head on Ho’s shoulder, as if asking forgiveness, while Ho pats him on the back in comfort.
So the thought was, with Bush being the Apologizer, to whom could he be giving his grief and sorrow? Surely not Saddam Hussein, and Osama Bin Laden seems grotesque to put in that role. Kofi Annan was the only person who came to mind…capable of receiving such a testament.
