‘Beware the Ides of March’

No shipwrecks today folks. For those that are still reading, I wanted to share two phrases I’ve come to appreciate. First: never smile at a monkey. Second: always listen to the soothsayer, even if he is a dreamer. (And for good measure: ‘moderation but only in moderation.’) In any case, I officially have 365 days to finish and defend this dissertation to meet a self-imposed deadline set years ago. The countdown begins after a day of much needed celebration, candle blowing and general merriment. Then back to work, double time.

    One more year of ships on the shore. Sounds enticing and exciting.
    Good luck with your dissertation.
    I am in the final edit of Disaster Off Martha’s Vineyard: The Sinking of the City of Columbus. Should be in the bookstores by Memorial Day.

        I’m doing the final edits on the book, using your words to bookend my text.
