The Conundrum

Really Deep Thoughts - Awesome.

From Really Deep Thoughts

The Conundrum
Ruthie-Marie Beckwith

She was deep in thought as she considered the depths of dysfunction that held her love life captive. Her relationship with her cosmic mate had become yet another dangling participle in a long line of grammatical errors, still there, but not attached. What she needed was a sentence diagram, an expository essay, an authoritative source; something to guide her through what must be karmic refuse of past lives interfering with the present tense. Her life had become a thesaurus in search of a meaningful conjunction.

Action words could serve the purpose. She would steer clear of the passive voice and run, jump, leap, and soar. She would stand outside knee deep in prepositional phrases and serenade him with intransitive verbs. She would project superlatives across the ever-expanding schism between them. Lonely, lonelier, loneliest. Far, farther, farthest. Sad, sadder, saddest. Then again, she reflected, it might take an onslaught of forceful conjugations.

Alliteration might apprehend his attention in lieu of allegory. Onomatopoeia offered the option of oomph! Failing that, there still remained the sword and shield of analogy and simile. Her secrets are unfathomable fears curled up in a fetal position deep inside her womb. His aloofness is like rain clouds that hover ominously throughout a hot and humid summer day. Their prospects were balanced precariously on the tip of a euphemism.

Finally, she came to a conclusion. She'd pay homage to his contraction. She would offer up a simple sentence fragment. Love.

FROM THE WEBSITE (concerning Baruch Beckwith, MD):

Stager-Beckwith Mansion now home of Myers University, Midtown campus

FROM THE WEBSITE:

The MidTown Campus of Myers University will be housed in a building whose history stretches back to the mid-19th Century. Most recently known as the University Club, construction on this building began in 1862. It was built by Colonel Anson Stager, the General Superintendent of the Western Union Telegraphy Company. During the Civil War he also served as the Chief of the U.S. Military Telegraph.

As originally constructed, the building was over 10,000 square feet and cost more than $60,000 to design and build. It was finished in 1866. By that time, Colonel Stager had been transferred out of Cleveland so he sold the house to T. Sterling Beckwith, the area’s leading dry goods salesman. He and his family lived in the house until just after 1900. What was then known as the Beckwith Mansion (or sometimes the Stager-Beckwith House) was part of the renowned “Millionaire’s Row”, the section of Euclid Avenue housing the lavish estates of such notables as John Rockefeller, Leonard Hanna, Jeptha Wade and William Mather.

"The Rev. Dr. Michael Beckwith delivered the keynote address on "A Season of Nonviolence." Both Roots Kelso and Topaz described the speech as "inspiring."

"He spoke of how every little step towards nonviolent solutions is backed by multitudes, all of those who have come before and worked for peace. Consider the lineage of Gandhi and King, and we never need to feel alone," Roots Kelso said.

Remnant of Beckwourth trail removed from Reno-area land sale

Remnant of historic trail removed from Reno-area land sale: "The remnant of a pioneer trail near Reno that's believed to still bear the marks of California-bound settlers has been removed from Washoe County's surplus auction block.
A stretch of the Jim Beckwourth Trail about the length of three football fields had been included in a 3.3 acre parcel. It includes a 300-yard swale or depression in the soft ground left by wagon trains.
The county bought it as a potential site for a new juvenile detention center, which since has been built elsewhere. County commissioners agreed Tuesday to preserve the land.
Beckwourth was born "

Sylhet

Sylhet: "Nestled in the picturesque Surma Valley amidst scenic tea plantations and lush green tropical forests, greater Sylhet is a prime attraction for all tourists visiting Bangladesh. Laying between the Khasia and the Jaintia hills on the north, and the Tripura hills on the south, Sylhet breaks the monotony of the flatness of this land by a multitude of terraced tea gardens, rolling countryside and the exotic flora and fauna. Here the thick tropical forests abound with many species of wildlife, spread their aroma around the typical hearth and homes of the Mainpuri Tribal maidens famous for their dance. "
