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,

Master of Ceremony

Man is a commodity
like any other ;

He satisfies the desires of others ,
by being lovable
or hateable ,
and so forth ;

And he isn't paid any price for that,
for this is a barter system ,
where other human beings
serve him to the same end  ;

He is the master of ceremony
( so he thinks ! ),

But when none look at him ,
he speaks loudly , to attract attention ,
and despaired ,
shouts and cries and curses ,
enraged like a child  ;

When exhausted,
he sinks into a slumber
of obscurity for a while ,

But awakes,
forgetful of the past ,
and starts anew
with an increased zeal,
along the road of illusion
set for the glittering mirage ;

Oh !

How great a pretender
is this man  ?
