Two professors from the philosophy department go to the University Club for lunch. One orders a roast chicken dinner--half a roast chicken, salad, mashed potatoes and gravy, desert and choice of tea or coffee--plus an egg salad sandwich. The other one is amazed.
"Dang, you must be hungry!" he says.
"Nope," his friend replies, "I just want to see which comes first, the chicken or the egg!"

WHILE IT'S TRUE that not every wanderer is lost, it's equally certain that sometimes some of them are, or at least that they feel like they're in unknown territory. That's how I've been feeling lately.
1) I was in the hospital with cardiac complications (since resolved);
2) my wife was in hospital with Gall Bladder problems (resolution pending);
3) I flew back to Maine to be with my brother as he sat with my dying mother.
She died in the early hours of Easter morning. And while I'm sad, I also take comfort that she's no longer in any distress.
So, yes, lately I've been feeling just the tiniest bit like a lost nomad. The up side is that I also have taken my self in hand and recalled how grateful I am. Life is so precious and mine is incredibly enriched by all the wonderful people I love and whom I count as friends!
All that is in aid of saying that I'm back from wandering and will be posting here regularly again. And, now, how could I end without a note of lightness?
The past, the present and the future all went into a bar. The situation became very tense.
