..even bad things end
....May 31, 2008
All good things must come to an end. Like most people, my entire life has been one good thing ending after another. It is the way of things. But I never would have thought that bad things can also end. Which is why the termination of this site is so surprising. Who would have imagined that something this bad could ever end?
I dedicate all that I have done here to my friend, The Silverback. It was his idea and design. He maintained it. But for The Silverback, this site would not have existed. Thank you, David.
Next, I bow to Ochiya. She has taught me many small and wondrous things; among them, that I am capable of being understood.
I thank those whom I love, whether acutely or chronically. You know who you are.
And, finally, I acknowledge the following:
My dead father and my living siblings
Denise and Bud
Dr. Samuel Johnson
My best friend, Jeff
The National Lampoon
Peter Mark Roget
J. S. Bach
2007 National Champion LSU Football team
The musical score of the movie Glory
Shakespeare's sonnet # 73
Girlfriends, class of '74
The Swamp Fox
Chet Baker's version of My Funny Valentine
Sullivan Ballou's letter to his wife, July 14, 1861
And to all who have read these entries---in particular, those who were kind and encouraging---thank you.
