I find the family the most mysterious and fascinating institution of the world.”   —   Amos Oz

(You’d think this guy was raised in an orphanage, or something!  But, I guess each family is unique in its own way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Happy birthday to Wes Studi!  A fine, fine actor.  He made for one terrifying Pawnee warrior in Dances With Wolves!  Just saw a few minutes of it last night, on HBO.     YUR

Answer:  RAPIDLY

(A nice stinky pun.  Hopefully, he won’t go into a roll.  But, at least he’s wearing a helmet.  We have yet another new clue word today, in “accrue”.  It looks familiar to me, but it’s not in the recent ralis95 clue word database, so we’re going to call it new.  All of the jumbles were new, to me.  I struggled mightily with “yield”.  I first attempted IDLEY ???, and then EYLID ???  What was I thinking?  I had to back into it.  It’s not a word I would add to my blind spot list, but I just give credit to the jumbler-man, David L. Hoyt!  Because of the two and a half vowels, I was looking for a two syllable word, I guess.  It’s very humbling.  I thought the answer letter layout was great too.  And of course, Jeff Knurek captured all the drama of white water kayaking.  A grand puzzler, as our friend Linda Lee would say!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

‘Tis always the season . . . to remember your mother!




Your Mother carried you inside of her womb for nine whole months, she felt sick for months with nausea, then she watched her feet swell and her skin stretch and tear. She struggled to climb stairs, she got breathless quickly and even a simple task like putting her shoes on was a huge struggle for her. She suffered many sleepless nights while you kicked and squirmed inside of her and while you demanded that she scoffed junk at 3am, she then went through excruciating pain to bring you into this world. She became your nurse, your chef, your maid, your chauffeur, your biggest fan, your teacher, your agony aunt and your best friend. She’s struggled for you, cried over you, fought for you, put herself second for you, hoped the best for you and has driven herself insane with worry for you but never has she asked for anything in…

beyond grief, beyond belief

Even while we celebrate light . . . there is still so much darkness in the world.

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

we mourn deaths of hundreds of innocent children today

news reel lost its time
repeating, reminding, binding
us in this tragedy together

they were light in a dark night
they were day, gold in clay
all they wanted was to play

enjoy life, make smiles language of universe
who gave you the right to end their dream
who gave you the right to bend the fabric

and do the sin which even Satan disowns
he hates that we call you evil, as you are far above it
do you breath, is it blood in your food

human fingers in your soup,
when you sleep do you sleep on
skulls of mothers and their unborn children

do you live, is it life what you call
recall every moment when you were young
were you young or abomination appeared randomly

what is consciousness to you
yes mastermind, deathly blind,
merciless monster, why…
