Original Story Title: Switch – Chapter Three – The Journey

What do Extra Terrestrials think of us?

The human race can be confusing.

Indeed, sometimes in Venice, the line between puppets and people was not always clear.

How did it all begin?

Once Upon A Time in a Zoo.

The Lion King ruled!

By instinct! And by force!

A jungle of suspicion.

We share our planet with over 10 million species.

In the animal kingdom there was and there still is

beauty and the beast.

The Great Debate!

Creation versus chance.

Would an infinite number of monkeys typing at random, eventually produce the entire works of Shakespeare?

Before we measure our superiority, remember, We are only one percent smarter than a monkey.

Everything that we are that distinguishes us from chimps emerges from the one percent difference in D.N.A.

Imagine another life form that’s one percent different from us in the direction that we are from different from the chimp.

Think about that.

Think about how smart they (Aliens) would be?

So we don’t have conversation with any other species on earth with whom we have D.N.A. in common, to believe that some intelligent other species is going to be interested in us enough to have a conversation?

                                                  (Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson)

Back to the real world.

Good bye Venice.

Hello Verona.

A love struck Romeo

Singing the streets of serenade.

Laying everybody low

With a love song that he made.

Find a convenient street light

Steps out of the shade

And he says something like

You and me babe,

How about it?

              (Music by Dire Straits – Romeo and Juliet)

I am continuing my journey.

In search of new locations.

And so my fellow Americans.

Ask not what your country can do for you?

Ask what you can do for your country?

My fellow citizens of the world.

Ask not what America will do for you?

But what together we can do for the Freedom of Man!

(U.S. President John Fitzgerald “Jack” Kennedy)

I was inspired by the Camelot Prince.


The Cocktail bar was closed.

Happy Hour was gone.

I was far away from home.

And I was alone.
