Precious Memories...
Give Life to my Ancient Soul...
Regrets I Eschew...

The Past is Prologue...
The Future Undetermined...
The Present a Gift...

Embrace the Present...
Unwrap the Daily Gift, Now...
Hidden Joys Within...

      North...Philosophy is the art of wondering...pondering... with some of the enduring questions as they manifest in everyday life...Rodin's "The Thinker" embraces these enduring questions, some of which are unanswerable or unattainable...But struggle we must, because it is in the struggle that we attain true knowledge...Larry

      Mark...His "The Kiss" inspired some of my earlier poetry...Rodin never worked in marble or bronze...others, inspired by his works in clay, used his models for more enduring forms...Larry

      Love this, Larry. Glad someone wrote a poem about my favorite sculptor.
