Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry.

The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks. Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river.

–Will Durant

Thanks for being an unwished-for reminder of what’s important. Every time I think of you I will try to recognize the inconsequential, the petty, the trivial things for what they are. And laugh more, like you did. The world will be a little dimmer place without you in it. But hopefully they’re keeping you busy with DR on the other side. *smile* Aloha ‘oe.
