Past experienced vs past experienced by others… through my entire life I have so often been drawn to nostalgia on memories that were not mine, lived or dreamt by strangers. Good memories, though.

Teichmüller and differential surfaces – the beauty of marked hyperbolic structures, the free joy of geometry. Check WP Thurston and low-dim 3-manifolds, foliation, Haefligers and loose ends on that. The elusive concordances and diffes….

It is early, like six or so. Outside, the crow is very engaged in its own hymn to Summertime.

A tribute to the more discreet hummingbird and its magic flight in reverse, this is one by the lonesome Emily D., written long ago:

A Route of Evanescence, 
With a revolving Wheel – 
A Resonance of Emerald 
A Rush of Cochineal – 
And every Blossom on the Bush 
Adjusts its tumbled Head – 
The Mail from Tunis – probably, 
An easy Morning’s Ride –

Finding beauty in unsuspected places… oh, Life Surprising!
