As intimated previously, here is what I have for today, as I’m now on my way to the airport, figuratively, if not quite literally. See y’all in a day or two…. I hope you enjoy this exercise in mutability….
It cannot recollect
When it began, or if there were
A day when it was not.
It has no future but itself,
Its infinite realms contain
Its past, enlightened to perceive
New periods of pain.
~~ Emily Dickinson ~~
I’ve previously used this poem; it may be one of Emily’s most famous, so it’s probably familiar to many people…. I don’t know if Emily had pain herself, of a physical nature, beyond what everyone else feels, when they bark their shins, for example…. If she didn’t, her depth of insight was even greater than I had previously imagined….. This is an assertion I believe implicitly; Emily was, without doubt, the most advanced human EVER in that respect, in my opinion, and by all the evidence at hand…. Her poetry must be considered as proof of that, proof that leaves no room for doubt…

Airport? Did you come back?
Never mind, I guess you did. Saw the date May 17 and it’s now May 25. Gosh! I’ve been gone long!
