And yet, small and insignificant as that bear is, my dear, it is a question whether he is not as dangerous an animal to meddle with as a man- eating tiger."

The Black Bear

In the summer, fall, and spring
the black bear sports and has his fling,
but winter sends him straight indoors and there he
snores… and snores… and snores.

The Performance

Hardly a day goes by
Without the sound of the crowd
Rumbling along climbing into stands

Getting ready to watch the show
Taking out handkerchiefs
Smiling sneezing coughing a lot

When will it all end — and how?
In fire or in snow?

Nothing is thought rare
Which is not new, and follow’d; yet we know
That what was worn some twenty years ago
Comes into grace again.

Francis Beaumont and John Fletcher,
Prologue to the Noble Gentleman (l. 4)

old rural English proverb: "Hall binks are oft sliddery" roughly translated, "The benches in manorial halls are often slippery"

STOKERS 027

Chip the glasses and crack the plates!
Blunt the knives and bend the forks!
That’s what Bilbo hates –
Smash the bottles and burn the corks!
Cut the cloth and tread on the fat!
Pour the milk on the pantry floor!
Leave the bones on the bedroom mat!
Splash the wine on every door!
Dump the crocks in a boiling bowl;
Pound them up with a thumping pole;
And when you’ve finished, if any are whole,
Send them down the hall to roll!
That’s what Bilbo Baggins hates!
So, carefully! carefully! with the plates!

There are 4 things you must never do: lie, steal, cheat, or drink.
But if you must lie, lie in the arms of the one you love.
If you must steal, steal away from bad company.
If you must cheat, cheat death.
And if you must drink, drink in the moments that take your breath away.

We do not grow absolutely, chronologically. We grow sometimes in one dimension, and not in another; unevenly. We grow partially. We are relative. We are mature in one realm, childish in another. The past, present, and future mingle and pull us backward, forward, or fix us in the present. We are made up of layers, cells, constellations.
