Route 66

At midnight tonight arrives my 66th birthday. Today has been one for finding articles on Candide for BFA and other online research. Meanwhile I have floated through the day listening to the "Faure channel" of Pandora. One piece that has come through in various performances is "The Lark Ascending" by Vaughn Williams which I offer up here to go with my 66th...

Life seems as shaky to me these days as if it were subject to earthquakes. Arthritis has made its debut, going from the supposed bursitis of last year to the knee pain during my travels in Japan to widespread joint pain the last few weeks, settling like a curse into my hands and feet. Mortality seems to lie along Route 66.

The days ahead promise some social relief and change of scenery at least-- Savannah for Labor Day. Parting with August will not be difficult.
