Listed below are links to weblogs that reference A Paean of Such Patience [by Tom Healy]:


I think the human species should be considered primitive species so long as it goes to war. There must be other alternatives. I don't think there's been a week free of war despite the intelligent minds that have roamed this globe.

Maybe one day there will be an anti-war commission stronger than any take away the toys of nations.

This is a moving post Tom. Just right for these times. I needed to spend some time to reflect on Armistice day today and this helped a lot. Thank you.

Tom - thank you for this elegant and thoughtful offering.

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
