Play Time

Email Zola.

Ogres, whether fictional or real, are the most self-satisfied people you will ever see.

Light Show

Mark Twain observed that if the stars appeared only once a year, on that night the whole world would step outside to see them.
Of course this was before man polluted the night with excessive light.
Some years ago a comet appeared in the sky.  There was much media hoopla.  When asked if I was excited about the comet, I replied "Yes, but I would be happy just to see the Milky Way again."

The stars once gave us signs,
shapes to see, myths to find.
Orion's belt is now our share,
half a fighter standing there
looking for a vanished bear.

Beneath the night's soft shade
a quiet and untroubled glade
abides with dreams of home and place
to calm the sad and puzzled face
of man and his sinful ways.

How much of our loss is surrender?
Do we truly 'lose' or do we give it away?
Or maybe we just let it go?
