“What is life? It is the flash of a firefly in the night. It is the breath of a buffalo in the wintertime. It is the little shadow which runs across the grass and loses itself in the #sunset.” (In Washington D.C., at the Washington Monument enjoying a peaceful & beautiful sunset) #lifeisgood #washingtondc #travel #slimk #washingtonmonument #relaxation #summernight #goodevening (at Washington Monument)
Although I’m glad that incompetent sectarian Prime Minister Al-Maliki is gone, I hope his successor is more tolerant, open-minded, will do a better job and try to unite Iraqi people, because #Iraq is Shia/ Sunni/ Christian/ Kurdish etc.. and NOT only #Shia as Al-Maliki ruled and failed miserably. As far the terrorists of #ISIS goes, “No”, in my opinion not enough is been done, what they (“international community”) are doing right now is saving the people from ‘ethnic cleansing’ (#Yazidis, Christians, Kurds, and other minorities) from them (ISIS), but NOT eliminating them (what should be done as well), there’s a major difference here, this group must be dismantled and destroyed to the last animal standing.. f left behind, I see a grave danger in not so distant future lurking for the rest of the world, if not dealt with properly a.s.a.p. Have we not learned from history? apparently not.. Sooner or later we have to deal with these thugs, they are not going away “peacefully”. #Middleeast #war #injustice #intolerance #islamism #radicalism
"I believe in you and me. I’m like Bertrand Russell and Albert Einstein in that I have a respect for life — in any form. I believe in nature, in the birds, the sea, the sky, in everything I can see or that there is real evidence for. If these things are what you mean by God, then I believe in God. But I don’t believe in a personal #God to whom I look for comfort or for a natural on the next roll of the dice.”

Watching this with a tear and a smile. This has to be one of the best TV (late night talk show) moments of all time. Two wonderfully spontaneous comedic minds (Craig Ferguson & Robin Williams) competing. Brilliant and hilarious! Unfortunately I never met Robin Williams personally, but boy I’m going to miss him. You could tell this man had a huge heart and tremendous unique talent. A great great loss for the world of entertainment and comedy. #comedy #jokes #funny #robinwilliams #craigferguson #latelateshow #television
Goes superbly well with the salmon dish, Chilean Tormenta from Viogner grapes from Torres. Grapes are organically grown ..it’s delicious. Cheers. #lifeissweet #wine #drink #happyhour #happysaturday #goodevening #restaurant (at Washington DC)
