Time To Say Good Bye It must have been about 9:30 pm and I had settled in bed for the night when it came to me by way of the voices of Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli, “Time to say goodbye…….” I have no idea why this melody floated into my consciousness. In this song written…

Baring Arms For The Cause Confucius, the great Chinese philosopher, is credited with many witty sayings, most of which I dare not quote here, but this one I can.

Keeping Up Appearances The phone rings. There is a clattering of high heeled shoes on the tile floor. Then a rather high pitch voice is heard saying, “Good afternoon! This is Mrs. Bouquet, mistress of the housing, speaking.” After a slight pause, the voice resumes, “Oh, it’s you Sheridan dear. How nice of you to call…

Treasures In The Hold It appeared on the horizon at about 7:30 am. Then at 8:00 am approximately, it had arrived in the inner harbor, and by 9:00 am had settled in next to the pier at Damien’s Landing. Looking at it from my front porch brought to mind these lines from a girl scout…

“Beneath The Banyan Tree” Legend says that “trees are the record keepers of the earth. They are busy gathering information and holding volumes of wisdom and knowledge.
