Do You See?
Fatalists are a specific people. With all due respect, I’m not one. Although, a friend rapped me saying that in my recent posts I sound fatalistic. How? No! I’m more the “carpe diem” type. Somewhat Epicurean! Without malice to anyone (or in reverse, to one and all!). So, to celebrate this thought and please my blogger friends, I have to turn to John Donne again for a read this evening:

I told you about my London-Brighton visits. Photos are available now; click HERE. My favourites are the graffiti photos. Street art.
What a lovely day in Stirling. Sun and fresh grass smell. I could hug a swan! Oh, this brings to my mind a writing fun we had at Skidmore College, NY, last summer, around Yeats’ Leda and the Swan. Stop, stop. Do not attempt a Freudian analysis now! I promise to write about that later.
Finished my Q&A draft for the next post on PRAIRIE SCHOONER (University of Nebraska-Lincoln). Will do the edits tonight after my run/walk.
