#32 from Walt Whitman's Leaves of Grass

I think I could turn and live with the animals, they're so placid and self-contain'd,
I stand and look at them long and long.
They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the earth.

en route Deming, then Tucson; November, 2009

Monica's beautiful stash of Flora!

From "The Girl who Kicked the Hornet's Nest" by Stieg Larsson

Salander was brought a simple lunch at noon and spent the next hour solving equations in her head.

She focused on an area of spherical astronomy from a book she had read two years earlier.

At 2:30 she was led back to the interrogation cell and pondered a particularly intricate equation.

After ten minutes the door opened.

"Hello Lisbeth." A friendly tone. It was Teleborian.

He smiled at her, and she froze. The components of the equation she had constructed in the air before her came tumbling to the ground. She could hear the numbers and mathematical symbols bouncing and clattering as if they had physical form.
