Good Morning!!

I am feeling well despite having read the morning paper.  I am sorry to read of the behavior of some of the players on the Warriors team.  I'm sure it is a tough job, but they are well-paid and they are role models for our kids.  I was out walking one morning when clumps of little boys, probably fourth or fifth grade, were riding their bikes to school.  What was their conversation?  The Warriors.  I know it is hard but I think these guys are paid enough to remember to keep their emotions in control and to know that they are idolized and watched by the young as well as the more mature.

I also see that antlers are a big trend in the decor of New York City restaurants.  I don't know where to go with that.

The world is nuttier than I can imagine.

I come across this poem today.  I don't know what to say about it either.  I guess I am a bit blank and fuzzy and though I've flossed between my teeth, I need to floss between and stimulate the synapses of my brain. 

May your day be filled with laughter and running springs.

A Process in the Weather of the Heart
  A process in the weather of the heart
Turns damp to dry; the golden shot
Storms in the freezing tomb.
A weather in the quarter of the veins
Turns night to day; blood in their suns
Lights up the living worm.

A process in the eye forwarns
The bones of blindness; and the womb
Drives in a death as life leaks out.

A darkness in the weather of the eye
Is half its light; the fathomed sea
Breaks on unangled land.
The seed that makes a forest of the loin
Forks half its fruit; and half drops down,
Slow in a sleeping wind.

A weather in the flesh and bone
Is damp and dry; the quick and dead
Move like two ghosts before the eye.

A process in the weather of the world
Turns ghost to ghost; each mothered child
Sits in their double shade.
A process blows the moon into the sun,
Pulls down the shabby curtains of the skin;
And the heart gives up its dead.

Dylan Thomas
