I don’t have much to say about anything going on in the world.  I am encouraged by some events and discouraged by others.  I guess Dickens first line in Tale of Two Cities will always apply to this planet.  It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the epic of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way– in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only. 

I am, like many, a big Dickens fan and I have been fascinated by the sources for his novels.  They are mostly about specific events in his life.  Every one knows that David Copperfield is based on much of his life but I’ll bet not many people know that the character Estella from Great Expectations had her origin in the young actress Dickens left his wife for.  The character Tiny Tim was based on one of his girls that died when she was very young.  His father spent time in a Debtor’s prison like the father of the main character in Little Dorrit.  There are many more examples.  He wisely drew from his own life and created some of the most memorable and fascinating characters in literature.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I was young there were two things young guys did not do to their hair.  They did not shave their head when they experienced hair loss and they did not dye their hair a different color.  Yes, they let it grow which really shook up the previous generation but that was it. 

Times have certainly changed.  Now most guys have short hair but there are plenty that don’t and they have no problem with changing the color.  The famous violinist David Garrett is really a brunette but he dyes his hair blonde. 

I don’t have any problem with hair dye or long hair but I really have a problem with shaved heads.  I don’t know why but I prefer to see some hair. Anyway, Clyde still has plenty of hair and I told him that I would hate it if he shaved his head if he started to go bald. 

He pulled his beard.  Does it look like I am going to use a razor any time soon? 

I don’t think I will be seeing a shiny Clyde chrome dome in the future.
