new old kid on the blog,
with an occasional
old or new poem written off
the old writer's block
Ah, my friendthere you go again exploding old myths: this time the one about impermanence. But, as you rightly surmise, why is it, after all, the same 'ol same 'ol when you step onto dry shore?
Conrad,As I'm sure you're aware, the Greeks have a phrase which aptly describes a somewhat similar situation: "Nothing so permanent as the temporary", mainly used in cases where pressures of time force us to implement something NOW (usually put together in a slapdash manner) but which is conveniently left as is until the situation gets unbearable. Milton 'Reaganomics" Friedman (of "Shock Therapy" fame) usurped this Hellenic aphorism to describe temporary government programs: "Nothing is so permanent as a temporary government program." Sic transit gloria mundi.
