So...Russia was attacked by a meteor, huh? Wow...*Shudders...
A little fact about me: Things like that scare me. I couldn't even bring myself to watch Deep Impact and Armageddon when they came out (still haven't to this day). These films may be fiction but the threat is very much real in my eyes. It could happen and it's that defenceless feeling it leaves you with. There's nothing you can do but wait and pray for a miracle.
I once wrote a short piece for our writers group and posted it on here a few years back (although some of the characters were changed). What would you do if you only had an hour before the world ended? How would you spend that last hour? In truth, I'd probably spend it alone. My family are too far away, my husband away most of the week, and so it would be me and my cat. And then I began to feel guilty because as much as I love my cat, I wouldn't be able to protect her. In the end I contemplated a nice bottle of wine, some sleeping pills to share with my feline friend and a warm bed to snuggle down in. Even now, just thinking about it makes me shudder. What would you do in the last hour?
And so, to honour those who have had the fright of their lives today I've gone for a Sci-Fi theme picture. A wallpaper.
Enjoy and have a great weekend, everyone. And remember, keep looking to those skies :)
