His flight was like the flashing of light, his plumage was beauteous, and his song ravishing....

There fell ... a spark into the nest of the bird, which blazed up forthwith. The bird perished in the flames; but from the red egg in the nest there fluttered aloft a new oneā€”the one solitary Phoenix bird.

I am one of the few of my generation to possess a classical education, such subjects as Latin and Greek being deemed irrelevant when I attended college. Nevertheless, I persisted and pursued my interests and wound up with a law degree as well. Although retired from practice to be my son's full time mother, my education still stands me in good stead. Raised a Roman Catholic, my primary interests are history, philosophy, theology, culture and language.
