Simplicity,


Asceticism,


Self-denial,


Self-restraint…


 


Nothing owned,


No one to bone,


For past deeds we must atone,


For future fantasies we realize we are alone…


 


Austere ,


Severe,


Of some I do revere,


No one do I live near…

And thanks for your wonderful friendship this past year, too, Pal!

PS Jersey likes bourbon - straight up.
