Civilization is a stream with banks. The stream is sometimes filled with blood from people killing, stealing, shouting and doing things historians usually record, while on the banks, unnoticed, people build homes, make love, raise children, sing songs, write poetry.The story of civilization is the story of what happened on the banks.Historians are pessimists because they ignore the banks for the river. — Will Durant
My writing during these past 19 years has been all about the events on the banks of civilization. I am pleased I’ve been able to those stories in newspapers.
