THE BOOK OF KNOWLEDGE
Temecula, CA – Before I start the news and news trend stories, cough, Dr. OZ vs. GMOs, I feel the need to let my readers know why I dropped off the grid for a little over a month. Returning to Iowa for the Spoonbills Reunion/Woody's 60th seemed a simple thing at the onset. However, when I tried to visualize a return date, I arbitrarily chose April 20.
After rolling into Des Moines at 2am to be picked up by an old friend recently reconnected by the infamous facebook, the door opened and this trip led to a trip of discovery in a place where the majority of Memoirs of Mr. Pete & Mary Jane Green [chs 4-14, 16-18], named Davenport, IA. The story of the birthday party will be reported in a different news piece, hint- it was a blast!
This trip of discovery revealed new music, old ground, and great eats, my kind of adventure. But too, it wouldn't be me without a touch of the esoteric, so there was some of that. In particular, I came across a book I heard about decades ago when I attended St. Ambrose. In some class on religion a professor noted that there was a book which explained why things were the way they were. This was a book of enlightenment. It's like getting your five minutes with God - “Of course. Now it all makes sense now.”
