Life Goes On



"There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self."
-Aldous Huxley

The fellows that seem perpetually intent on digging up our road- they had a brief respite this week, leaving us in peace for a few days. But they were back to greet the sun this morning, to propel me violently from my sleep and to concentrate on that most special patch of ground which I estimate to be less than three square feet.
Some things, it seems, never change.
We are in the midst of a substantial and extraordinary week; but life nonetheless must go on, the wheels of trivial matters must keep turning, and we must all attend to our own fragment of the world to ensure any degree of improvement.

Bah Humbug. Just kidding. Tell Mater the "defeated" are still able to send greetings. You might ask those road workers if you can help. Pappy

Texican, as Mater would say, "keep your chin up" and I see it as a marked sign of your determination to move on, that you put the word "defeated" into quotation marks ;) It's very good to see you back to poetry and happier things.

Please look around, explore my writing, leave a crumb:
