Such Great Heights...

"No bird soars too high if he soars with his own wings."

I think Icarus did get up there too high. Didn't listen to good advice.

Icarus wasn't flying with his own wings either - just copies made of wax and fallen feathers.

Hola, Sheila! I am glad you are in the blogging world. I will better be able to keep in touch with you. Nowadays it's one of the few ways to keep in touch with me.

I am planning to go down for Azalea's birthday. I'm actually planning to take a small leave of absence from work and go down for a few weeks. Cat Merrick might come down with me for one of the weeks. She's smitten with Azalea like everyone else who meets her. It'll be good to see everyone. I am sorely missing my family.
