Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

There are many images
Around me,
And all are distorted ;
Whether my eye sight
Is failing or
Acquiring a different focus,
I do not know.

I am trying to give up
What others think are
The better things of life ;

I am trying to prove
( to myself ? ),
That I am different
Than the others.

The inner peace
Does not seem to come,
I seem
As empty as before –
Is fulfillment
An empty dream ?

Even two birds fill the sky,
But I am alone,

And doomed to die.
