Attention! Blog Update!

Yes, I can see the intrigued, excited expressions on the faces of my avid readers. What have I done now to make this blog better? Gee, thought you'd never ask!

If you look in the left-hand column, you will notice under the blog archive that I have now sorted my entries by category. Now you can search my previous entries both by date and by topic. Am I nice blogger, or what? For the record, sorting and adding labels to over 230 blog entries is not an amusing diversion for a Thursday night!

"Passage—immediate passage! the blood burns in my veins! Away, O soul! hoist instantly the anchor!
Cut the hawsers—haul out—shake out every sail!
Have we not stood here like trees in the ground long enough?
Have we not grovell’d here long enough, eating and drinking like mere brutes?
Have we not darken’d and dazed ourselves with books long enough?

Sail forth! steer for the deep waters only!
Reckless, O soul, exploring, I with thee, and thou with me;
For we are bound where mariner has not yet dared to go, And we will risk the ship, ourselves and all.

O my brave soul!
O farther, farther sail!
O daring joy, but safe! Are they not all the seas of God?
O farther, farther, farther sail!"

~Walt Whitman, "Passage to India"
