A Brief Message

Because of family health problems that require my attention, I will be suspending further posts for a time.  I appreciate all the visitors I’ve received and the comments made.  I’ve had the pleasure of sharing my thoughts with many people from different countries and I value this experience.  I’ve also visited many other blogs, which have provided me with entertainment and material for reflection.

I hope to contribute new posts as soon as I am able.  I plan to restructure the main page, making subjects easier to locate.  I’d like to offer inner tubing videos and I have other plans as well.  My computer knowledge is rather limited, so I will require assistance with the aforementioned tasks.

In concluding, I would like to include a Grook by Piet Hein:

Some people live in a world

of what’ll allow them to live their dream.

They solemnly hold out a half-pint bottle,

and ask for a pint of cream.

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.
