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,

My Melancholy Friend



__________________________________________
He sits there
in a chair ,
and broods
about the past :

The glorious , happy 
carefree days ,

But his young memories
soon exhaust ;

And the endless time,
reluctant to move
bores him :

The overpowering loneliness
of the present
engulfs
and makes him run
to the crowd ,
where in vain ,
he seeks 
to drown himself
in the commotion
and small talk,
over endless cups 
of iced tea
