Of the Passing of a Public Figure

Of course everyone, or at least most people, will know that Sen John McCain passed today. It is safe to say that I did not always agree with his policies or political views, but he was a decent man.

What is age? A feeling? A moment? A time? Or what we make it to be? Is age then perception? If so whose? The perception of the mind? Of others? Of the world? What is age? Held in a breath Looking upon the sea Each wave a thing Onto itself and whole Yet fleeting And … Continue reading Age
