Less we forget you old man. I too have been to the North country. Your words ring true for me and others that don't fit in! As you wrote, the lone trail, the lone trail, follow it to the end.God Bless you and your poetry.

For I believe, with star and sun, / With peak and plain, with sea and sod, / Inextricably we are one, / Bound in the Wholeness -- God. ~RIP~
