It was brought to my attention that tomorrow, June 12, is “Loving Day”.
As I am fulla love these days, and freely exhorting the power of love upon my friends and relatives , I was delighted to learn this.
Today, June 7th, is traditionally First Day of The Vestalia.
Last celebrated in the Roman Empire…

Space, like time, engenders forgetfulness;
but it does so by setting us bodily free from our surroundings and giving us back our primitive, unattached state.
Yes, it can even, in the twinkling of an eye,
make something like a vagabond of the pedant and Philistine. Time,… Read full post »

I am listening to the first rock n roll album I ever bought, The Wall, by Pink Floyd, as I write this.
