When In Rome
Pardon the light posting. I’m in Rome. That’s Rome, Georgia. Beautiful town. But I’m here for a convention so, unfortunately, I won’t get to spend much time seeing it.
Rome, Georgia is named for Rome, Italy. There is a river that winds between the hills here, just like Rome. There’s even a statue of Romulus and Remus, nursing from a wolf. It’s a bit uncomfortable to remember that the statue came from Mussolini.
Life is like that. You never know who will be a winner or loser ahead of time. Empires come and go. Legends live on.
Always keep in mind that we really aren’t that different than the people that came before us. Every generation marvels at the latest technology. Every generation is impressed with the power of the latest empire.
That will have to do for thinking this morning. It’s time to hop on the hamster wheel.
