The heart of another is a dark forest, always, no matter how close it has been to one’s own.”   —   Willa Cather

(At first glance, this sounded to me like the musings of a jaded lover.  But at second glance, I see it more as there is just no way to know what lies in another’s heart, because we are all individuals.  We’ve all seen, heard, felt . . . experienced things under different times and circumstances.  We like to think we know what someone is feeling, because most things in life happen to all of us, but never in exactly the same way.  We are all the sum of our individual experiences.  But regardless, be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  DAY AFTER DAY

(Not bad.  A mild pun, at best.  Hey, I heard a good one today on that extended Today Show.  They showed a clip of some guy deep sea fishing who had hooked a 200 lb. marlin . . . maybe it was a swordfish.  Anyway, it jumped out of the water, right at the guy!  With the guy’s quick reactions, it just barely missed impaling him, and the fish fell back into the water and got away.  Al Roker quipped:  “If that had happened to me . . . I’d be chicken of the sea!”  Whadaya think?  There’s a future Jumble in that, no?  Well, anyway, there you go.  I’ve made sure you guys got a two-fer today.  Lucky you!  There were no new clue words today.  I was thinking maybe “fixate” might be new, but no.  All of the jumbles came up as new though.  The answer letter layout was good, but with the answer block layout, and all the calendars in the cartoon, the answer was pretty much a gimme.  I like how Jeff worked in the Jumble a Day Calendar, available at . . .  Ah, look it up yourself.  I’m not getting a commission, or anything.  Actually, I don’t think they offer a calendar.  I could be wrong.  But, how often is yer Uncle Rave wrong???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
