rumors abound

I have heard a few things lately. Hints of this movement in the populace, of trends washing ashore, or vacant spaces in our minds about to be occupied. The passing of one month is a chance to reflect, but shortened memory and the overwhelming nature of things these days requires that we all pause and consider what we have lost, and perhaps what will shortly disappear forever. We must stand motionless in the face of crossing currents, feeling for a brief minute that we know their number and aim. Occasionally, fate and design push us off the silent beach and we are left wandering again. Peace, as all things must, proves a temporary acquaintance and not the lifelong partner of anyone's dreams.
