The air  is sharp,  cuts to  the bone

Why  should each  face their life alone

Because  we’re made in  pairs to start

Including  body,  mind and  heart.

T’was  God  Himself  who made that choice

So  Adam’s rib  would have a voice

And  be his  partner and  his wife

To share with  him for  his whole life !

EXCUSE ME but today is one of those frustrating times when I am awash in waves of nostalgia that simply will not evaporate or disappear.  I find these inexplicable occurrences are triggered by some minute detail, a date or an odd notion, secreted away in the intricate catacomb of the mind !  That’s a mouthful of words, but all true.  At this moment, I believe the trigger to be the occasion of Memorial Day !  For those of my generation, I would imagine that World War Two ( note: in deference to those unfamiliar with Roman numerals ) is the guilty impetus today !  Perhaps almost 75 years later, one would expect the memories to have faded into nothingness, however that war remains as viable today as it was all those years ago.  The names of places that existed only in travel brochures or the geographical almanacs of the era easily roll off our tongues plus we can actually spell them, like Enewetak or Tinian.  Just imagine, a generation deprived of the option of earning degrees that can think AND spell !  Is that like walking and chewing bubble gum at the same time ?  HAHA !  I wonder.  Can anyone explain Common Core to me, is it related to Common Sense ? Thank you for your help !              Sincerely,                               Claire B.
