And while I’m on the nostalgic track

I was reading through the first blog I kept and two things stuck out.

1. I can’t believe that I wrote this:

I also have to get a good summer job, hopefully working for the forest service.

2. I haven’t read this poem since high school.

Sail Away
Rabindranath Tagore
Early in the day it was whispered that we should sail in a boat,
only thou and I, and never a soul in the world would know of this our
pilgrimage to no country and to no end.
In that shoreless ocean,
at thy silently listening smile my songs would swell in melodies,
free as waves, free from all bondage of words.
Is the time not come yet?
Are there works still to do?
Lo, the evening has come down upon the shore
and in the fading light the seabirds come flying to their nests.
Who knows when the chains will be off,
and the boad, like the last glimmer of sunset,
vanish into the night?
