A Thought for Today
The greatest favor you can give to truth is to use it as often as possible.
A NOTE FROM
Rod has officially started his
summer "break" though to me it sounds as though he'll be working
as hard as ever over the next six weeks. I know all of you will join me in
wishing him all the best for his mini tour which kicks off with the
Riverton concert this coming Saturday.
Speaking of Riverton Linda
Becker, wonderful lady that she is, has kindly offered to make computer
facilities available to those who'd like to contribute to this site by
filing an eye-witness account of Rod's concert on Saturday. There's no
Internet Cafe in Riverton so I guess it would have been difficult for
visitors to drop me a line after the show giving me their impressions of
Thankfully Linda has solved
the problem by generously agreeing to make two computers in her office
available to those who'd like to help out. The address for your
contributions is, as usual, firstname.lastname@example.org
and I look forward to hearing from some of those lucky enough to attend
what promises to be a spectacular weekend.

THE TIME OF NOON
When the old memories you call back to help you do the things that will put you to sleep don't work anymore, and even the aphrodisiac of magazines doesn't help, and there is no place to go and no one to call, try thinking about the sun. The way it catches in the trees sometimes, the way it follows you while riding in a car, the way it plays in the hair of strangers on the beach, the way it runs behind the rudder of a boat, the way it climbs hills in the morning.
Think about the time of noon, when everybody's just a little crazy. Remember that the cliffs are white and steep.. You'll grow tired climbing them, so - go slow. The sun is years away from going down and we've got time to watch it every mile. There won't be any moon tonight and this is the time of noon.
