This is the place on-line where I park my spontaneous thoughts, poetry, etc.
"Words are, of course, the most powerful drug used by mankind." ~ Rudyard Kipling
"Abuse of words has been the great instrument of sophistry and chicanery, of party, faction, and division of society." ~John Adams
"Everything we hear is an opinion, not a fact. Everything we see is a perspective, not the truth."
Whittier pond 700 feet below
The white dots? Ducks
Great and Long Pond in the distance
...and mountain peaks
Turkey vulture soaring gracefully -- eye level
(buzzard is a vulgar term)
Fragrance of new buds
Titmouse crying cheerfully
Calming hum of a passing plane
All this . . .
ALL OF THIS!
