Citizen of the Galaxy
In Robert Heinlein’s Citizen of the Galaxy, Thorby starts his life as “lot 97”, sold in slavery, with no memory of family or friends. Bought by Baslim the Cripple, a beggar who is secret an agent of galactic federation against empire, Thorby learns survival on the streets, but also learns the rules of ethics and loyalty that Baslim teaches him. I “like” Thorby because through the book, as he grows into adulthood, he is a quick learner of all things that matter, stays ignorant of things that don’t matter, and is fiercely ethical and a fighter against corruption. I have enjoyed re-reading this book several times in the forty-five or so years I have known it.

Alexander Xenou sat in the darkness listening to the steady tick tock of a clock. It seemed synchronized with his own heart. Tick tock tick tock tick tock – thirty ticks, thirty tocks every minute. It had been hours since he left the board room, the corporate life left behind.
In the dark, the questions came. What went wrong? Where is my hope? What is the next step? Who goes with me and who stays?
With each tick tock of the clock, each beat of his heart, Alexander felt his life paused in time.
Then the light came on.
Starting as a blank book, gradually filling with all sorts of eclectic stuff while on this trek across the present we call life.
green meets blue
…is a very interesting word, full of color and flying things and music. It melts in your mind like a Dali clock. In addition, there are so many flashbacks of the fun times of times gone by. Time to dig out my tie-dyed t-shirts and put some flowers in my hair, and burn some incense and peppermints. Wait! What was that I just saw?
