Memorial Day and the Indy 500 2023


Enjoy your Memorial Day and if you have a moment – a prayer to the winds for fallen Military would be appreciated whatever Gods you choose.

Here’s the “Go Fast – Turn Left” portion of the weekend.

Let’s just say the Indianapolis 500 was a crazy car race in 2023!

Eulogy for a Veteran
Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.

I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the mornings hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
of quiet birds in circled flight,
I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
