My seventeen year old daughter usually quiet, takes off her ear phones while picking up her lightsaber chopsticks and says
“My friends were lamenting on how unlucky our generation is.…
WE ARE TOO LATE TO EXPLORE THE WORLD FREELY
WE ARE TOO EARLY TO EXPLORE SPACE
I just said to them.
WE ARE IN TIME TO EXPLORE OUR MINDS”
A smile breaks on her face as she puts her earplugs in and flicks her lightsabers on and chopsticks her way through Thai peanut chicken and rice.
She knows she’s striked and won.
Two days on my eyes still well up.
