The wanderer Upon a mountain height, far from the sea, I found a shell, And to my listening ear the lonely thing Ever a song of ocean seemed to sing, Ever a tale of ocean seemed to tell. How came the shell upon that mountain height? Ah, who can say Whether there dropped by some too careless hand, Or whether there cast when Ocean swept the Land, Ere the Eternal had ordained the Day? Strange, was it not? Far from its native deep, One song it sang,-- Sang of the awful mysteries of the tide, Sang of the misty sea, profound and wide,-- Ever with echoes of the ocean rang. And as the shell upon the mountain height Sings of the sea, So do I ever, leagues and leagues away,-- So do I ever, wandering where I may,-- Sing, O my home! sing, O my home! of thee. 1883. Eugene Field

For all you "Fitbitters" out there, I have just received the official "Africa Badge". It seems that I have logged on 5000 miles over my fitbit career.

"The Greatest Show on Earth" is closing after 146 years. I have great memories of out folks taking my sis & I to Seattle to see the "Big Top". The clowns, acrobats. lions & the parade of elephants, it may not be politically correct now but it was magical to a 7 year old kid!!!
