The stand is this: the time between now and my
death has already been counted, the days a known quantity,
though concealed. The space between home and the cities
requires care in the use of travel, travel I choose to devote
mainly to art and friends. Therefore, I will, even more than I
have in the past, frame my work projects as matters for the
student, the scholar and devote time to them in the measured and
consistent way I know well. At some point I will turn that work
over to the poet for creation of manuscripts: essays, poems,
books. The monk's role will be to keep my spirit steady and
refreshed, in contact always with the geist as it interacts with
my Self. In the overall I place family first and the scholar's
labor second, the monk's rhythm will define my days, and the
poet's sensibility my creations.
Hot Springs, S.D.
Mammoths (scientific name Mammuthus primigenius) are extinct herbivorous
mammals that had long, dense, dark black hair and underfur, long, curved
tusks, a fatty hump, a long proboscis (nose), and large ears. They lived
in the tundras of Asia, Europe, and North America. They lived from the
Pleistocene to the early Holocene epoch (about 10,000 years ago), millions
of years after the dinosaurs went extinct. They are closely related to
modern-day Indian elephants. They were about 11.5 feet (3.5 m) long, 9.5
feet (2.9 m) tall at the shoulder and weighed about 3 tons (2.75 tonnes).
The tusks were used for protection, in interspecies dominance, and for
digging in the snow of the ice ages for grass and other food. Much of our
knowledge of mammoths is from cave drawings found in France and Spain and
from mummified mammoths found in Siberian ice! (Classification: Family

Preservation of the mammoth remains was somewhat
different than has been imagined by the uninformed. The mammoths were
'mummified', a process that is quite easily done in a cold environment.
