  2. Well damn, Shawn, it's not that godawful Season One episode of NEXT GEN. Whew! What a stinker! I can't help feeling you've cheated here, and as I always say on these occasions, I wish I'd thought of it first. Indigo

    1. Ya, TNG was a bit of a stinker in the first season. But it was season 1 that hooked me.

  3. Well, Wikipedia is sometimes my haven. It certainly helps me maintain the illusion of being moderately intelligent.

  4. Haven is shelter. Whether from my home, family, friends. Whether is is physical, or emotional.

  6. There is no haven, as far as I'm concerned. We may think we have one, but we don't. It's an illusion that can be easily shattered at any moment.

    2. Haven is, even for a moment your place of comfort.
      Or a movie starring Zoe Saldana.

  9. I don't always believe Wikipedia as it's not always reliable. That being said, it's often a haven when looking things up. ;)

  14. Oddly, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear "Haven" is Fallout 3, the post-apocalyptic action-RPG video game that takes place in nuclear-ravaged parts of Washington DC and Pittsburgh. Haven is a location in the game, of course.
