Reworking Your Outlook: Pensive Post Alert

Mood: Thoughtful  Good evening folks. I hope all is well with everyone who happens to read this. I came across this image above, and it spoke to me on a few levels. Of course, you all know that I am a science fiction head of you’ve even been reading this blog for a month. So, there’s that.
