Houseman's Inspiration
from Bob S.

While out discovering about mine and your P, I found a poem someone was using to sign off which always helps. In case you haven't seen it, here it is. God bless you for your sense of humor, I know I suffer less with it.

From far, from eve and morning
And yon twelve winded sky
The stuff of life to knit me
Blew hither, here am I

-A. E. Houseman


Ed's Reply:

Thanks, Bob. Houseman's song goes a long way to synthesize the curious happenstance of P as part of our lives. It evokes the kind of gentle, wise acceptance I needed to hear on the eve of a new year that holds ... who knows what? ... for all of us. -Ed
