Peace

I say peace a lot, and that's a good thing (I also say that a lot). For those unfamiliar with my videos, I close each vid with the one-word sign-off: "peace." I got that from my father, who used to say "peace" instead of goodbye, way back in the seventies. I thought it was cool and important as a young man back then, and I still think it is cool and important today.

Today, by the way, is the International Day of Peace, a day dedicated to global unity, with the goal of having one day out of the year free from war, fighting, terrorism, genocide, violence, anger and hatred.

In honor of this great day and as a tip of the cap to my old man, I produced this short video:

Until next time...

peace (what else?),

I end all my videos with, "... and then the elves get ****-faced drunk and naked, and break into people's houses to steal shower curtains."

-My videos don't sell too well, but the medical documentaries get a lot of comments.

(FYI)

When I think of 365 OR Mike Foster, my mind instantly says "Peace" and my heart smiles! I am a product of the 60's/70's hippie peace era. It's part of who I am, so there is an obvious affinity for the entire concept. I'd add only one word - "Love". Thank you for being you!

"Peace" is how I met my husband! I was giving him the peace sign from across the room, he became intrigued and the rest is history! :)

Well, I still blame the elves in any case.

How strange. I heard all about International Talk Like A Pirate Day on Friday and never heard about International Day of Peace. And now I've missed it.

Perhaps this says something about my subconscious priorities--or, more likely, something about the priorities of the world.

Peace Mike!

Peace! I like your article. What an idea!

Mike Foster said...

lobo: when in doubt, blame the elves

barry: so true, the world's priorities often seem skewed when talking like pirates takes precedent over working on attaining worldwide peace...thanks for the visit...

hr recruiter: what an idea, indeed...


peace,

mike
