in a while I forget - go mad - and then God stretches me out.  In some ways a great blessing, otherwise would have probably done myself in completely long ago.
Hope you do have the chance to see your folks during the Holiday Season.
Youve been a great traveler these past days - a great experience.
Well Bill someday you'll put all these things you are going thru into some form of expressive beauty.  Out of such deep experiences - new symphonies new structures of monumental Beauty can be created.  All you have to do is to let the seed take root and then keep watering the plant.  With Best wishes - and again Merry Xmas & a Happy New Year
Best Wishes
