I like that one

Particle Physics
They say two photons fired through a slit
stay paired together to the end of time;
if one is polarized to change its spin,
the other does a U-turn on a dime,
although they fly apart at speeds of light
and never cross each other's paths again,
like us, a couple in the seventies,
divorced for almost thirty years since then.
Tonight a Red Sox batter homered twice
to beat the Yankees in their playoff match,
and, sure as I was born in Boston, when
that second ball deflected off the bat,
I knew your thoughts were flying back to me,
though your location was a mystery.

I had some weird comments lately with Asian scripture, hence I temporarily had posting restrictions on my blog. Well, they are ALL LIFTED now, with the exception that I will moderate comments who relate to a post that is more than 14 days old. Sorry for the temporary inconvenience.

I have not fulfilled my promise Before the Sunrise - I feel bad but I have excuses, turbulent times in my valley...
So you are going back. Will you still connect again to your friend at the Waldorf school??? I feel so bad that I wasn't able to donate. I could explain, but it wouldn't fill the gap.
Please stay in touch, times are always changing.

My friend at the Waldorf school is my sister, so yes, I will be in touch with her :)

Do not worry about promises. I have had turbulent times too!

We will be in touch.
