Ah yes, the intolerant parallax perspective of us human charter members of The Flat-Earth Society, Catholic and infidel alike.... Such persistance prevailing in forbidden sexual dialogue between parent and child, about the differences between what is good for one from beautiful nature, and that which which is harmful, condemning babies to perpetual angst in guilty self-pleasures and such..... leaving shame in just holding hands... Can we talk freely about our wonderful natural carnality with those who may actually know something of the subject? Thank you Vatican, and co-conspirators against our children. Not all have abandoned control, however.... only lucidity. I want a hippopotamus for christmas Click on this image for a Christmas serenade from a different perspective...

  1. Wow! Very deep thoughts! Now it is all about perspective and perception...just some of us then add value and judgement to our perspective/perception when it differs from others. i'm right, they are wrong. And who is different from the one than the other?
