Monday
And all that that implies.
I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship. -- Louisa May Alcott
He who wonders discovers that this in itself is wonder. -- M. C. Escher
Interesting article on NYTimes.com about Firefox browser. I'm certainly a convert. Love that tabbed browsing. Although I noticed on microsoft.com yesterday they are touting a plugin that brings that functionality to IE.
Today's Poem
In Vision I Roamed by Thomas Hardy
nN vision I roamed the flashing Firmament,
So fierce in blazon that the Night waxed wan,
As though with an awed sense of such ostent;
And as I thought my spirit ranged on and on
In footless traverse through ghast heights of sky,
To the last chambers of the monstrous Dome,
Where stars the brightest here to darkness die:
Then, any spot on our own Earth seemed Home!
And the sick grief that you were far away
Grew pleasant thankfulness that you were near,
Who might have been, set on some outstep sphere,
Less than a Want to me, as day by day I lived unware, uncaring all that lay
Locked in that Universe taciturn and drear.
