"From the darkness, sleeping light." Formerly luminus dormiens. Lux pacis, light of peace.

Quote: "Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us." --Bill Watterson, cartoonist, Calvin and Hobbes


time is like . . .

a cabinet: You open it up and find all the things that you use to keep food on to be eaten: plates, cups, bowls.

a door: You can open it or close it. And when you open it, you can choose to go through or just look around. But it's always there.

an old grandfather: He is a little lonely, a bit of a curmudgeon that sometimes you feel you have to humor.

a bird: it chirps in the morning, disappears in wintertime, and comes back with many newborns in the spring.

a flower: it blossoms, then wilts.

a car: you ride it in to get anywhere, and with patience it can take you there, but carefully, or you will crash.

a vacuum cleaner: it sucks up the dirt, the hair, the unsavory things so that you have a cleaner house.

a star: it always comes out at night, and it is always there, when you look up to see it, but when you live in the hurly-burly, with all the artificial light blocking it out, you can forget about it.

a desk: you write on it, do all the deskly things with it, then throw it away in exchange for a new one.

a checker board: you leap one marble over the other, but all the marbles must come home together.
