More Birth of Our Community

April 3, 2017

I have today published the second part of my history of early Grandview.

This part covers the period 1880 to 1899 when Grandview failed to blossom as a number of speculators had hoped.  As always, I am keen to hear comments and corrections.

Poem: Unwinding

April 3, 2017


Memory is

the first traitor


It is such a waste

to undo the syntax,

to untie the tender meanings,

to try to catch the logic

that meant little then

and nothing now;

to wonder what

was meant.

Was there a

design back then,

that leaves no traces?


Memory is

the first traitor
