“They Fly Forgotten Like A Dream…”

“Time, like an ever rolling stream, Bears all its sons away; They fly, forgotten, as a dream Dies at the opening day.” I wrote last week about trying to use the new year to be better at keeping in touch with my family and it turns out that time, that irrepressible phenomenon, intervened and took … Continue reading
