"As nightfall does not come at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there's a twilight where everything remains seemingly unchanged, and it is in such twilight that we must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. ~William O. Douglas

First-time published

This was a web page I did awhile ago for the fun of it, but it hitherto has never been published. http://easternsierra.us/country_glass_bishop/ I like what Grandma Moses said, as it gives me some small consolation for doing moving forward, no matter what the increment. "I have written my life in small sketches, a little today, a little yesterday... I look back on my life as a good day's work, it was done and I feel satisfied with it. I made the best out of what life offered."
