Pebbles
June 4, 2009

My dad and I did few things together. We shared a lot of common interests - physics, the more credible UFO information, science fiction ... we watched Planet of the Apes, Logan's Run, The Man From Atlantis, Starbuck, Battlestar Galactica (the original, where Starbuck is a male, not a chick).

And we watched a show that started the same year my little sister was born - Kung Fu.

I was fascinated by the sequences when the main character, Caine, was a child. That and the endless repetitions of "Patience, Grasshopper."

But what really stuck with me was

Master Kan: Quickly as you can, snatch the pebble from my hand.
Young Kwai Chang Caine snatches his hand out ... but fails to grab the pebble.
Master Kan: When you can take the pebble from my hand, it will be time for you to leave.

Apparently the pebble was snatched ...
