A Thought for Today
Some of us are working lifetimes to erase a work set down in haste that should have never seen the page.
The stone cries out. A whisper first, a moan and then a muffled shout. Nobody listens. Why bother with the stone, the single singing rock, the lone man dealing out the cards upon the table in the game of solitaire?
The soloist, whether up above the orchestra, on the outside of the woods beyond the meatrack or in the farthest elbow of a crowded room, is asking to be left alone or crying out for company. No matter. Very rarely does the solo player engage in double solitaire. The reason is a simple one - always there's a chance of winning.
- from "Alone", 1975
