Pick the day. Enjoy it – to the hilt. The day as it comes. People as they come… The past, I think, has helped me appreciate the present – and I don’t want to spoil any of it by fretting about the future.
Face today’s illuminations
the negatives and positives
the nature and the nurture
accepting the environment
for tomorrow may not occur
That time of year thou mayst in me behold
When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
Bare ruined choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
In me thou see’st the twilight of such day
As after sunset fadeth in the west;
Which by and by black night doth take away,
Death’s second self, that seals up all in rest.
In me thou see’st the glowing of such fire,
That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
As the deathbed whereon it must expire,
Consumed with that which it was nourished by.
This thou perceiv’st, which makes thy love more strong,
To love that well which thou must leave ere long.

The one synagogue that survived the Holocaust near Auschwitz is nearing the state of collapse.
I must read this book, The Rarest Blue: The Remarkable Story of an Ancient Color Lost to History and Rediscovered.
Freud’s Sister looks to be a compelling book, and one that apparently raises a lot of questions.
