"I shall be very lonesome without you. How miserably things seem to be arranged in this world. If we have no friends, we have no pleasure; and if we have them, we are sure to lose them, and be doubly pained by the loss."

|Wild Fact About Me
||born in dallas, texas, but after I was two I didn't again really live in texas - until I went to college at U.T. in austin, in the late 60's. I moved to alaska when I was two & later lived in germany for 5.5 years ~ growing up there amidst a world where castles & castles' ruins seemingly were on every other hillside. /// At 20 I wrote an article in an underground newspaper about buckminster fuller's "World Game" -- which, he said, showed the best understanding of what they were trying to appear in the press..

I left my first love, a young blond beauty of a girl named Mary Beck, in Sumter SC - Shaw AirForceBase in 1956
Met her about age 4, left her just b4 I turned 7.
Never saw again, but her image stayed with me going on 60 years now.
I wonder if she still lives, and I still HAVE hope to see her again
