Margaret Alice Second

Freshman - 1,420 Points (24 January 1961 / South Africa)


A lifeline for Tiaan who thought a study guide
was just a waste of time and now realises it
represents important concepts - my son will
be caught in freefall by a new tutor

New beginnings for Nici who works under an
egotistic and clueless supervisor who has al-
ready lost many previous colleagues, every-
thing offers unformed potential events

That might coalesce in something new and
exciting or peter out into nothingness, an open
future with unlimited potential while the sub-
conscious guides us to pre-chosen goals

And objectives, I'm elated to know nothing can go
wrong because we never get anything done - that
every picture we paint with our lives can be erased
and redone in a new way, possibly even

Through reincarnation - the insight of knowledge
and wisdom means we can never be led astray by
prophets of doom while joy lies in trusting the good
and rejoicing in new experience

As we go along…

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I heard the bells on Christmas day
Their old familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, good will to men.
