    You're clever too, getting a workout while reading.

    I keep several books going at once. The main one is a reread of Barbara Tuchman's "The Proud Tower." Read it 30 years ago and am just now getting around to reading it again. In light of the direction our nation and the world has taken it is startling in the comparisons that may be made. It is a narrative of world events beginning about 1890 and leading up to World War I. Sobering stuff and the old adage of history repeating itself is probably holding true. This time I'm not sure Western civilization will weather an upheaval. We've just about given our advantages away.

    Also reading a book picked up on a trip to England, "On the Sublime" by Longinus. This volume is 240 years old, being published in 1780 and is a translation of a classical Greek work from around the 1st century A.D.
    “No possible rapidity of fire can atone for habitual carelessness of aim with the first shot.”

    Theodore Roosevelt, The Wilderness Hunter, 1893
