Friday Poem

Environmental & Science Education, Poetry, Art and Environment

Edward Hessler

As of today, November 13, 2020, 88.89 percent percent of of the year has passed. It is day 318 or, if you prefer another measure, the day on which 457,920 seconds have ticked from our clocks. 

Sunrise is at 7:06 am and sunset which seems to occur with a louder thud each day, is at 4:45 pm leaving in its wake 9h 36m 48 s of daylight. And so far the sun is delivering its light after yesterday's snow, fog, mist.

It is time for a random act of kindness--never to be restricted though to only this day; it is an any day act-although on this day is celebrated, unoffical World Kindness Day.

Quote of the Day.  Labour to keep alive in your Breast that Little Spark of Celestial fire Called Conscience.--The Young George Washington's Rules of Civility & Decent Behaviour in Company and Conversation. (This is the 110th , the last one, compiled by Washington when he was an adolescent--a good fire.)

And today's poem is by Calef Brown, from Dutch Sneakers and Flea Keepers.
