Hey, Mom! Talking to My Mother #182 - Happy Perihelion Day!
Depending on how we slice the pie, this is the halfway mark. 365 days divided by two is 182.5 days.
Yeah, I know. perihelion was a few days ago. But these blogs are rarely prompt. They are as I am, late to the party, and two dollars short or whatever they say.
Quick post today, Mom, so as to catch up and get ahead. Plus, it's a bit of a cheat. Here's text copied from Ray Kurzweil site verbatim and with the original format.
And because I flipped open a book and there it was and it seemed significant for today, a day that reminded me to read more poetry.
The World Is Too Much With Us- William Wordsworth - 1807
The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon,
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers,
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not. -- Great God! I'd rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathéd horn.
Reflect and connect.
Have someone give you a kiss, and tell you that I love you.
Talk to you tomorrow, Mom.
