...to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line. -H D Thoreau

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be
to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -
T. S. Eliot

What I learned at the opera today.
Navy and Black are rarely on speaking terms.
Adults do the potty dance, too.
When a sword doesn’t work, try an orange.
When you flood and dry the rake of the stage with soda for tack it
“does to” make a popping noise when you walk on it.

  12. You could probably write a book on all four of these or weave them into a song lyric. Maybe keeping your Donovan theme you could set them to one of his catchy little tunes (I always liked his tunes more than his words).

  13. Very true about black and navy. Rather like my mother used to say about me not liking my cousin because we were so much alike. ;o)
