"An autumn leaf the wind has tossed / To nowhere yet to everywhere"

Transcendental Sonnet #1425 and Final:

On Learning I Must Sell Out and Move Away


The sky is falling down at last

Life ends as life begins

The rain comes down to drown my past

And wash away the sins

Of generations lived and died

What we stood and fell for


Our good and evil shame and pride

Now fades to leave no more

Than faint stain when the rain has dried

The battle and the war

Now lost to me because the cost

Was more than I could bear


An autumn leaf the wind has tossed

To nowhere yet to everywhere


+Steven Curtis Lance

The page turns and a new story awaits, Steven! New surroundings, new air, new sense of being. Grief, of course, in the pain of letting go but this could be a symbolic release of the past and shedding of the skin you've outgrown. I wish you joy after sorrow and peace in new horizons...

Love, Lin

That's Not Funny! by Vince Sanders

How come the Nation’s first Black and White stand up comedy team (Tim & Tom) couldn’t stay together? Was it educational and cultural differences–or maybe one was funnier ..
