Dear Reader:

I no longer have the energy I used to. Posting every third day was becoming like a job, and I’ve been retired for eight years, so I tried taking a break, with positive results. I still expect to post occasionally at NBL and a couple other sites, but I’m sorry, I’m now on extended leave from posting here.

My very best wishes to us all,

Those bastards who’re spoiling the soil,
They really make my blood boil;
I’d tear out their guts
And cut off their nuts,
Except that I still want the oil.

Heraclitus Says

The old days again might be nice,
But according to ancient advice,
For that you can’t prep,
Because no one can step
Into the same river twice.

What Should I Do Now?

Don’t follow what anyone said:
Find your own best way instead;
Above all, don’t heed
Every word that you read,
Including these words you just read.

Accepting One’s Niche More

The more alpha animals solely
Dominate the more lowly,
But humans resent
Being bowing-down bent
Unless they’re convinced they’re more holy.

We Can’t All Get Along

Simple tribes in which we used to dwell
Evolved a hate-other-tribes spell;
For a while, that worked fine,
But now races combine,
And it doesn’t work out quite as well.
