The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.
Laneway. Just off Russell Street, Sandy Bay. November 2011.
Theme Thursday today brings a lot of promise.
TOMORROW, you see. There is always TOMORROW. TOMORROW offers all the opportunities in the world. Whatever happens today, TOMORROW awaits.
TOMORROW it might not rain. TOMORROW I might stay dry.
TOMORROW I will start losing weight. TOMORROW I will get myself fit. TOMORROW I educate myself, smarten up, tart up and address all of those niggly little things that have constrained me up to this point.
TOMORROW I will quit drinking so much coffee. TOMORROW I stop eating all that junk. TOMORROW I will tidy up my desk and finish up that work that’s been hanging around for weeks.
TOMORROW I will walk more upright, look people in the eye and tackle everything with 110 percent. TOMORROW I will be more attractive to the opposite sex, smell better, smile better, run faster, leap higher, swim further and sing in a more harmonious voice.
TOMORROW I will be a more generous tipper, lover, brother, husband and father.
There is always TOMORROW.
