Boldly Going Into the Future (without focus)

Yesterday is now today by now!
by pantor of the Oaks

Yesterday is now today!
Yesterdays' today is in the past.
Yesterdays past is today's past,
but yesterdays' tomorrow is today's' past, and its' future.

Tomorrow's' past is today's' future,
and tomorrow is today by now.
Tomorrow doesn't know yesterday,
but tomorrow's yesterday knows the future and the past.

Today is the future and the past.
Today's' future is now the past.
Today's' past is in the future,
but today's' future is tomorrow's past and future.

The futures past can be today.
The future is tomorrow and today.
The futures future is in the future,
but the future knows the past, tomorrow, today, and yesterday.


  1. Bebo and those words make my head spin.

    One last day to enjoy.

    TCU played a great game and won the Rose Bowl. WooHoo.

    Very quiet day here yesterday and likely another one today. I do have to go up to school and make some copies to get ready for tomorrow. Get myself reoriented. I forget names and kiddos when we're gone like this.
    That won't take long though.

    Made some great blackeye'd peas for dinner last night. Those are for luck during the coming year. Southern tradition.

    Jen, Thanks for the laughs. Glad you are feeling more energetic.

    MaryB, glad the tornado skipped over you.

    Beth, hope you enjoyed some football and maybe some more today.

    Maria, quiet time with Kit wonderful.

    Farf, may you get a bit of relaxation today. Or at least your own time for a bit.

    Waves to All on the first Sunday of the year.

  2. Jen sighting

    Heh, like I'm a wild mammal in a drive-thru nature park. "Please don't feed the Jens, it only encourages them to think they're people." ;p

    Baking some delicious whole wheat bread this morning, wish I could share it through the series of tubes as easily as a giggly link. Best wishes to all for a great day.

  3. I'll have to read that later today, when my brain is fully engaged. Spinning indeed!

    Woo hoo TCU! Great win for the little guy! Can't help but wish it was Boise State, tho...

    Great to see you out and about, Jen. And wishing I could have some of that bread!

    Hoping to be productive somehow today. It's warmer in NH than AZ today. But the sunshine looks nice, so we'll go out for a bike ride along the canal later. There's snow on the peaks around the valley - the locals are amazed.

    Happy Sunday, everyone!

  4. Hola, gang!! No productivity today, though I can say that I'm back on my exercise routine. Doing recumbent bike while watching Fringe = easy cardio!

    Is it nap time yet? ::g::

    Wishing you all a great Sunday!

  5. LOL Jim, that is a fantastic poem and photo combination! Well done ... :D

  6. The photo complements the poem well: both are a blur to me!

    I thought the sign might say "Beware: do not engage in a battle of wits with the Jens." Whole wheat bread is good — it can be a little wonky to work with if you don't add gluten, although I know that seems to be a no-no for some. Try rye bread sometime, that dough has absolutely no concept of "non-stick surface."

    Today was much like yesterday for me. Going slow, napping, reading, watching Mason, trying to decide if I'm gonna cough up a lung. :)

  7. Hi all,

    Back to the blur of school tomorrow, lottery ticket only won $4. Fortunately it's only a semi-blur day - no kids just teachers.
