Emily Dickinson poem about enterprise / mount baker theater power
"We are guardians of a great human function. Perhaps of the greatest function of the endeavors of Man. We have achieved much and erred often. But We are willing in all humility to make way to our heirs. - We are only men and We are only seekers. But We seek for truth with the best there is in Our Hearts. We seek with what there is of the sublime granted to the race of Men. It is a Great Quest." -
-Ralston Holcombe, The Fountainhead -

TO make a prairie it takes a clover and one bee,--
One clover, and a bee, And revery.
The revery alone will do
If bees are few. ---

And this was only the first leg of my Quest across the empire, and adventure to take the Temperature of the American Xxxperiment -
The results thus, of a method, not even remotely scientifically - though in delusion perhaps has a whiff of being as such - are indeed quite promising -
Thank you my dear friends for your time and Consideration,
Peace and Love along The Way,
