Re: sinclair-digest V1 #110
Niven, I always love your replies. How right you are about the courage. I
probably would not have subscribed to the Sinclair list had it not been for
my desire to follow that quest...that never ending learning curve that
hopefully works it's way upward.
On an aside note, I thought of you last night when helping my son with
The rooster...a symbol of awakening and resurrection. What a fitting symbol
for the Sinclairs! I am helping with his class' field trip today to our
large city cemetery. The rooster is among the many symbols listed that we
hope to find on stones.
