"That truth should be silent I had almost forgot"--Enobarbus in ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA, back in Rome after having been too long in Egypt.---------
Melville's PIERRE, Book 4, chapter 5: "Something ever comes of all persistent inquiry; we are not so continually curious for nothing."

Noel Polk as I prefer to remember him--world-weary cosmopolitan. In England to drive to Max Gate.
I'm going to grieve later. Right now I am annoyed with him for not seeing us in Oxford, Mississippi, in June 2007 because he had business in Arkansas and not letting us drive up from Meridian to see him in February 2012. And I am more than annoyed with him for dying so very young.
