Back Again With A Renewed Outlook

I’m back again with a renewed outlook on life after aortic valve surgery in December.  I’m now in Oregon, which has suffered an unusually cool May suffused with rain, hail, and just plain miserable weather.  June has been here for some time, and the sun has now become a common occurrence.  Despite temps. in the 80s, the Rogue River remains quite cold(in the low 50s), and inner tubing is still a few weeks away.  The river will be over 3000 cfs until the end of August.  High flows produce swift water and sometimes high waves.  Be careful if you plan to go on the water!  Let’s hope this is a great summer!  Photo below depicts Class 2 Takelma Park Rapid. sc00005d14

About Robert M. Weiss
From an early age, I've taken great pleasure in reading. Also, I learned to play my 78 player when I was quite young, and enjoyed listening to musicals and classical music. I remember sitting on the floor, and following the text and pictures of record readers, which were popular in the 1940s and 50s. My favorites were the Bozo and Disney albums. I also enjoyed watching the slow spinning of 16s as they spun out tales of adventure. I have always been attracted by rivers, and I love to sit on a boulder with my feet in the water, gazing into the mysteries of swirling currents. I especially like inner tubing on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. Since my early youth, I've been interested in collecting minerals, which have taught me about the wonderful possibilities in colors and forms. Sometimes I try to imagine what the ancient Greeks must have felt when they began to discover physical laws in nature. I also remember that I had a special passion for numbers, and used to construct them out of stones. After teaching Russian for several years, I became a writer, interviewer, editor, and translator. I continue to delight in form, and am a problem solver at heart.
