Reflection 67

Thursday, June 29th, 2017

Today is another personal holiday.  In the midst of a dislocation of time, I realize that something in me has gotten terribly old.  One after another we stitch the days, months, years together.  One after another.

I have had the good fortune of living a varied life.  Throughout three themes have motivated me:

(1)   A respect for our environment and living planet.

(2)  A wonder of art and artists and sports and athletes.

(3)  An admiration for the revelations of numbers.

I believe in numbers.   Facts.  Truths.

Anniversary

Saturday, June 17th, 2017

I find I will have spent eight years with the Poes – far longer than I thought possible, time researching in libraries and historical societies and in The National Archives and Library of Congress.  I cannot escape the steamboats; there are lots of stories to discover.  I keep thinking there will be one defining captain or pilot, or one great steamboat.  I keep plugging along toward an unknown destination.  On and on.
