“Wild Bill ” Guarnere

March 10th, 2014 by Vader

Is dead.

And when he gets to Heaven,
To St. Peter he will tell:
One more Airborne reporting, sir,
I’ve served my time in Hell.

History

July 25th, 2013 by Vader

It is sometimes said that the British and American people are still today, in the twenty-first century, indecently obsessed with the Second World War. The reason is not far to seek. We know that here was something which our parents and grandparents did well, in a noble cause …

The Sphinx at Gizeh

April 03rd, 2013 by Adam G.

I saw the other day the Sphinx’s painted face.
She had painted her face in order to ogle Time.
And he has spared no other painted face in all the world but hers.
Delilah was younger than she, and Delilah is dust. Time hath loved nothing but this worthless painted face. (more…)

At the End of Spring

The swallows’ eggs have hatched into young birds.
When the Seasons’ changes thus confront the mind
What comfort can the Doctrine of Tao give? (more…)

You Can’t Go Back

January 31st, 2013 by Adam G.

Places long unseen often loom larger in memory than they really are. That haystack on the old farm . . . that green lane . . . that high fence in the back yard and the tree we climbed to look over it – surely they were an important part of the universe. And the old house had yawning caves in the closets, and untold mysteries in that deep cellar and up in that beckoning yet forbidding attic. Why, that house couldn’t have been as small as now it seems.

I remember these things, and they were real, and and they are real now where I keep them in remembrance.

But we can’t go back.

Numbering the Days

August 28th, 2012 by Adam G.
