Cryptoquote Spoiler – 08/10/21

There are two lasting bequests we can give our children:  one is roots, the other is wings.”   —   Hodding Carter

(Yes, we had this quote a little over ten years ago!  And, I still have a great print of this quotation in my home, by Sam Flores.  It shows a stylized adult speaking to a child, while standing upon the roots of a large tree, whose trunk opens up to a canopy of various birds on the wing.  It’s not word for word the same as the above, but apparently there are a few recognized variants of this marvelous sentiment.  And yes, I copied most of this from the 06/18/11 spoiler!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
