So this is Christmas…


2001 Space Odyssey Aries Lunar Lander Ornament

… Another year over, and a new one just begun. 2001… Holy Shit! I don’t know about you, but I’m still hanging on to Y2K, sailing a zephyr through a time warp back to when the turn of the century seemed to be a millennium away.

Earth to Mike…that millennium has passed and the 21st awaits us next week.

Hal, are you there? Not quite … but the computer has control of the lives of many. An intergalactic space station hovers. We’ve automated processes that control our very existence.

But yet, there is still the overwhelming sense of present; wondering where all that time went. And it doesn’t seem all that long ago that I first saw the flick, 2001: A Space Odyssey.

We are now living in the most phenomenal of times. Hang on to your hats. Unimaginable courses of events await us. To that I say, Happy holidays and best wishes for a healthy, prosperous and an enlightening new millennium.

About Mike Slickster

As an early retiree with an honorary doctorate degree from the proverbial "School of Hard Knocks," this upcoming author with a lot of free time on his hands utilizes his expansive repertoire for humorous yet tragic, wildly creative writing that contains years of imaginative fantasy, pure nonsense, classic slapstick, extreme happiness and searing heartbreak; gathered by a wealth of personal experiences throughout his thrilling—sometimes mundane or unusually horrid—free-spirited, rock-'n'-roller-coaster ride around our beloved Planet Earth. Mike Slickster's illustrious quest continues, living now in Act Three of his present incarnation, quite a bit on the cutting edge of profundity and philosophical merriment as seen through his colorful characters, most notably evident in the amusing Thirty Days Across the Big Pond series, all of which can be found at

  2. Premonition?

    Little did I know how horrific the following year would become, with 9/11 and the ensuing, devastating crash of the world economy; changing the course of human events forever.
