Joan I hope you're the Tom Mayer from New Bern! We all miss you. Thanks for the Fitzgerald quote. A better metaphor than boats against the current can hardly be found. I wonder if young people can absorb the full import of "borne back ceaselessly into the past." Hmm.
Happy February and Lincoln's birthday.
