"A Copse. Evening"

"A Copse. Evening"
A. Y. Jackson, 1918
"I don't make hell for nobody. I'm only the instrument of a laughing providence. Sometimes I don't like it myself, but I couldn't help it if I was born smart."

1st Sgt. Milton Anthony Warden.
"From here to Eternity"

Paul Valery

"You are in love with intelligence, until it frightens you. For your ideas are terrifying and your hearts are faint. Your acts of pity and cruelty are absurd, committed with no calm, as if they were irresistible. Finally, you fear blood more and more. Blood and time."

The Wisdom of the Ages

"When a young man, I read somewhere the following: God the Almighty said, 'All that is too complex is unnecessary, and it is simple that is needed',"

Mikhail Kalashnikov
"Here lies the bravest soldier I've seen since my mirror got grease on it."

Palm Sunday

I almost forgot. Then this cool-ass photo of your truly - taken by my faithful Canon FtB(rick) with the self-timer - would have had to wait another year.
Palm Sunday; 1975.
Location: the top of Observation Hill.
Yes, Oly product shot. I'll be getting a royalty check in a few days.
Oly used to be Clint Eastwood's beer but I digress.
Anyway, lest you think that I'm a rabid, Christer, Easter fan.
No...Christer though I may be;

"One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind."
Romans 14:5

Sorry all you Revised Standard/New International fans - it's the King Jimmie for this kid.
This excursion was nothing more than a boredom staving device which resulted in a photo (Conversation piece!).
The supply ship had been gone since January. the last flight until August left a month before.
Daytime was, at that point, about eight hours long - easing into all-dark-all-the-time.
Thirty-six years ago today.
Ah, sweet bird of youth.
