Ho-kah Hey!

TP beach 1

A friend of mine, Stanley, said I had a Hunter S. Thompson look about me this day. I had a friend who ate his gun about 10 years ago and I wonder about others who are, in a sense, doing so passively. Enough about that.
It was a beautiful day and if I could have been shot through a cannon across any harbor, why not this one? "Ho-kah Hey," as I recall from Larry McMurtry's biography of Crazy Horse, is the Oglala Sioux cry for "Today is a good day to die" and was the ascetic warrior-hero's pronouncement before cascading on Custer's brigade.
Anyway, a cloudless sky bathed an otherwise empty Malaysian beach. A fine day, indeed.
