The Poet in each of us

This posting has been misplaced.


  1. Okay, I'll have to admit that I've never read Santayana; however I used to have several of his albums. I knew he played the guitar but I really didn't realize that he also wrote poetry.

    I would like to state for the record that I am impressed with my brother's ability to create this site. I'm not a blogger and you will not find me on facebook. In fact, I can't even text message.

    One of Mother's "sayings" she has repeated more times and for more years than I can remember, prompted me to Google its origin. It turns out that part of Philippians 4:11 reads, "in whatsoever state I am, there within to be content". I have not heard her say it lately and I don't think that she ever imagined that it would need to apply to her current condition; however she has accepted her current state of mind (or lack thereof) so much better than her children. Even in her current condition she continues to teach.

    We have a picture of Mother with a "saying" that that Joan credits to me. She says that I told this to Mother a year or so ago and she repeated it to our daughter Tammy who put it to frame,

    Your mind may not always remember,
    But your heart will never forget
    That I love you

    I think its more likely that I heard it somewhere and remembered it.


  2. That's my dad. The apple didn't fall far from the tree.
