Till at latest lingering of the night, indeed just as the dawn
My comrade I wrapt in his blanket, envelop’d well his form,
Folded the blanket well, tucking it carefully over head and
carefully under feet,
And there and then and bathed by the rising sun, my son in his
grave, in his rude-dug grave I deposited,
Ending my vigil strange with that, vigil of night and battle-field
Vigil for boy of responding kisses, ( never again on earth
Vigil for comrade swiftly slain, vigil I never forget, how as day
I rose from the chill ground and folded my soldier well in his
And buried him where he fell.
Walt Whitman (1819–1892), U.S. poet. Vigil Strange I Kept on the Field One Night (l. 18–26). . .
Good Morning & Happy Saturday.
Today is Saturday 04/30/V3.1 & its a womyn’s walk kind of day. I’ve already down the XXVI annual womyn’s walk. I got to hold a gold medal from MMVI olympics.
I’m heading to the Berkshire Hathaway Meeting in a bit, need to be down there before 16:30, otherwise the booths close. Yes I roll like that.
The word of the day is effloresce which means to burst into bloom; blossom.
I then have a Birthday Party to go to, I don’t know the details yet. Its not my party, its J-Scully’s party.
Have a gret Saturday & please stay out of trouble. I do have bail money though.
By famous, I mean I saw the sign when I was coming home & couldn’t find the restaurant.
Its on the SOUTH side of I-80 inside the PETRO Stopping Center. There is also a Baskin Robbins, which we don’t have in The Big O!.
They have 72oz Wide Load Challenge. You know LOTS of food, to be consumed in a small window. Its beef so I won’t be gettin on The Wall of Fame.
I order the Italian Sausage with Pasta dish(not the entire name).
Get on I-80 to York, NE;
Then go US – 83 to a left turn;
Then take NE – 8 for 24 miles to Superior, NE.
3 roads of 8 & 3 hours later I have arrived in The Victorian Capital of the World.
So between Lincoln, NE & York, NE the wind was howling.
It was a northerly wind, I’d appeciate if you turn off?
You are not here merely to make a living. You are here to enable the world to live more amply, with greater vision, and with a finer spirit of hope and achievement. You are here to enrich the world. You impoverish yourself if you forget this errand.
