no rush... with his bare hands he began to write out his suicide note he had considered typing it so there would be no confusion about why but it seemed rather impersonal and he always felt that communications should have some humanity to it so he decided to write it out in longhand but was worried that he might misspell some words since he was so used to using spellcheck he could type it out first and then transfer it to letterhead but someone might think … Read More

Dining on the salted seeds of boredom,
languishing in the ether of apathy and stagnation
.

 

 

Time turned back, yet no wisdom gleaned from the past,
still leading us to the end of all times.

 

The New Colossus – Emma Lazarus October 28, 2010

The poem, “The New Colossus”, by Emma Lazarus, is inscribed on a plaque at the base of the Statue of Liberty. It was written as part of the effort to raise funds for the pedestal

 

Not like the brazen giant of Greek fame,
With conquering limbs astride from land to land;
Here at our sea-washed, sunset gates shall stand
A mighty woman with a torch, whose flame
Is the imprisoned lightning, and her name
Mother of Exiles. From her beacon-hand
Glows world-wide welcome; her mild eyes command
The air-bridged harbor that twin cities frame.
“Keep, ancient lands, your storied pomp!”

    cries she
With silent lips. “Give me your tired,

    your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
