"Pertinax" and something else
First there is this from Robert Frost:
Let chaos storm!
Let cloud shapes swarm!
I wait for form.
And there is something else from me:
I apologize to everyone for my blogging chaos, contradictions, and confusion. All that has appeared here in recents days, weeks, and months has been damaged by my cognitive impairment, physical ailments, and adverse reactions to medications and treatments. So, as I beg for your forgiveness, I ask you to do three things: (1) ignore all previous postings because I am canceling all earlier announced reading, posting, and discussion plans (e.g., no more Holmes and Watson stories); (2) understand that my blogging future is merely a day to day proposition without any promises or plans; (3) tell me your thoughts on Robert Frost's three-line poem, one of ten brief poems that make up "Ten Mills" found on page 281 in the Library of America edition. As for myself, "Pertinax" says precisely what I wish I could say so artfully and succinctly. Yes, in spite of the storm, I wait for peace, quiet, and happiness.
