Blue Waves

A long time ago I read a science fiction story in which during a horrible moment a robotic or android butler said “It’s a pleasant day” … and when someone in the story countered it, the robot’s reply was “It’s always a pleasant day somewhere.”

That’s stuck with me ever since. No matter how bad things are, somewhere a mother is birthing her first child, two lovers are having their first kiss, the sun is shining bright right now somewhere above waves lapping against a perfect beach. No matter how bad it is where you are at this moment in time, it;s always is a pleasant day somewhere in this universe.
