Hi Friends,

Even as I launch this today ( my 80th Birthday ), I realize that there is yet so much to say and do.

There is just no time to look back, no time to wonder,"Will anyone read these pages?"

With regards,

Like my Birthdays

A lonely crow
Behind a lonelier crow
Behind yet another equally lonely crow ;

Dark shadows
Darting across a grey sky
Heavy,
With a monsoon’s sorrow,
Like thoughts escaping
Across a mind’s
Even vaster
Expanse ,
Quite like the pages of
My child’s book
That get lost even before
The words have taken shape ,
Or

Like my birthdays.
