Out of Mrs. C's Enchiridion

Let us recall


Here dies another day
During which I have had eyes, ears, hands
And the great world round me;
And with tomorrow begins another.
Why am I allowed two?
--Uncle Gilbert

And so I am reminded that it's much too long since I did one of these.

The stars. Yes oh yes ... Now that I'm a city dweller, I just don't see them any more, except when I visit home. One of those cases where the loss of a thing leads you to appreciate its value.

As a matter of fact, I've only ever lived in thick suburban or urban settings --- never far from streetlights, even, except for summer holidays. And while I do know what the milky way is supposed to be, I haven't often actually seen it, in person.
