Hey Walking Shadow I stumbled onto the quote
"To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow; a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
--From Macbeth (V, v, 19)
Hey, Nonnipoppy, I remembered the quote.
Backward, turn backward, oh, time in your flight
Make me a child again, just for to night!
It's 104 degrees in the shade - feels like 127. Already discouraged from arthritic knees, the unbearable heat was the straw that broke the geocacher's back - no geocaching today. But all is not lost. I can revel in the logs and maybe find someone to email. Let's see... Grandma and kids had a DNF at Amphi Phun. I think I'll write her. Ma Bell is taking a nap. I've played Freecell repeatedly and can't get my percentage above 94. The Desert Fox is on the History channel - I've seen it all before. I could play my ukulele but I let my fingers get soft. There's nothing else to do ... I'll just write some emails.
So I'm happily keyboarding. The Desert Fox just got pinned with some kind of cross for his 16 months of service in the African theater. Then a commercial comes on and the TV gets noticibly louder. I'll just mute it - I don't want to wake Ma Bell. I continue keyboarding as one commercial follows another. I glance up to see if the commercials are over yet when to my surprise, I KNOW THAT MAN. I desperately reach for the mute button when it cuts to a dealership sign. I sit here meditating... I KNOW I KNEW THAT MAN. Then it came to me.....
Tired of the hollow, the base, the untrue,
Poppy, O Poppy, my heart calls for you!
Re: Hey, Nonnipoppy, I remembered the quote.
Few things pass the searing heat of the day as fulfilling as A/C-ed blogging about, the celebs on TV. Eh?
