Many thanks to James Marino

Many thanks to James Marino of New York, NY, who sent me two items from my Amazon wishlist for my birthday: One Hundred Poems from the Japanese, by Kenneth Rexroth, and Catch 22, by Joseph Heller. Thank you James, thank you thank you thank you! And just because I received a gift doesn't mean you all shouldn't as well. Here's a little ditty from the Rexroth book:

The flowers whirl away
In the wind like snow.
The thing that falls away
Is myself.

– The Prime Minister Kintsune
