One of the more memorable winter storms of the century has just followed one of the more memorable storms in the history of the U.S.A., namely Hurricane Sandy. In New England we survived it without much to-do, simply due to luck. Obviously, Hurricane Sandy wrecked more havoc and the victims of that storm are still recovering.

 

Why am I posting this photo of the class of 1955? Indeed, why am I? To my own mind I  have not discovered the reason, but maybe someone can. I have discovered that the workings of the human mind imitates nature in all its fine details, and not vice versa. What this means for me is that time and place are more intimately connected than one would suppose simply by assuming that there is a great distance between the two.

 

There is a certain calm in the whirlwind of life. This photo (of which the only person I recognize is Valentine Lapsanski, a dear friend) portrays that calm. Nemo, recently departed, portrays the storm. They are related simply by the fact of association. Some may say that is, indeed, stretching analogy or for want of a better word, associations. But, I say, why not? The art of adaption is none other than the creative use of the most obvious and the most gracious (grace) which is given to us.

 

Having gone through the storm of Nemo I rejoice in finding Valentine smiling once again.
