What "particle" means, in Higgs boson "particle", is "little tiny thing". Not "grain of sand".

It's not that I exactly forgot, but when it mattered yes, I did, unmistakably, unforgivably, but overall, no, I didn't forget, I remembered, the day before, and during, and after for a few days up to and including today ten days later. But not when it mattered most I guess, when for those few moments I was here, or rather "here".
At that time I forgot.
I have no excuse.
My shield is battered, but still with me.
So it's different than it looks, but then everything is, isn't it?
We sat on the porch and watched our hands,
deal the day away.
You and me.
Happy birthday, in the name of the pumpkin Buddha.
Whoever you were, whoever you are.
Wherever you are.

Here's a picture of a cow and a graveyard.
Here's a tiny bedroom in a little house. A tiny bedroom filled with brand new clothes and the only place to sleep in it a nest on the top bunk of a bunkbed set whose lower berth is piled to the top with dresses with the price tags still on them.
Here's me and you out back waving at your mom in the sky as she goes flying by.
I've been going around singing Chuck Berry's "Maybelline" in my head ever since last Tuesday the 6th of April. Wishing I could get to an online computer and frustrated because I couldn't.
Because I wanted to say here

In Skywatchers, Shamans and Kings, American astronomer Edwin Krupp states that the centre in all cosmologies marked the place ‘where creation began, where order and life first emerged.’Munya Andrews
This explains why many world centres are often referred to as ‘the navel of the Earth, the point at which creation began,’ says Mircea Eliade.
Stones or other objects such as golden rods in Cuzco, the ancient Inca capital, or meteorites in the ancient Egyptian city of Heliopolis (now an outer suburb of modern Cairo) marked many of these so-called ‘centres’ of the world.
The ancient Greek name for these marker stones is especially revealing, for omphalos means ‘navel’. Given this link with creation, it would be interesting to discover how many of these centres have an association either directly or indirectly with the stars of the Pleiades. The omphalos at Delphi may be one of these.

One is driven near frantic with all to do that must needs be done and then a moment's pause amidst the field of wires, yes and apple trees, fencing tool in hand and glove, resting what now seems a young man's arm upon the accomplished task. Though then the age I was seemed central and precisely there, neither young nor old.
So much was hidden still yet to be made clear, including life in other forms and beings with other names and places where dragons' heads - really - were carted in to await processing and set design, and fences built to keep Bambi away from the Ewoks.
All true, and all vanished into a quarter century of steady-as-we-go.
And here to this now I put these more or less more experienced fingers and hands onto these far more cunning wires, to say, dear Boynton, I too as well was once caught by the camera in a moment's leisure in the midst of who knows what, but there it is.
70 acres of smooth-wire trellising, down rows and rows of dwarf-apple trees, the style of wire imported from New Zealand, and very popular in Australia we were given to understand.
