For you who have walked, or are walking,

to the ‘end of the lane’

with the one you love


“How far will you go with me, my love?

To the stile, or the bridge, or the great oak tree?

The lane is a lonely and fearsome place,

And there’s no one journeying there but me.”

She smiled at the stile with a sweet disdain,

She scoffed at the bridge and the great oak tree,

And looked me full in the eyes and said,

“I will go to the end of the lane with thee.”

Then I loved her anew with a strange fierce love,

As high as the stars and as deep as the sea.

She would share my heaven and share my hell!

She would go to the end of the lane with me.

Richard Wightman

Fascinating Brain . . . Oh yeah, I believe there is a God.

  1. The brain itself cannot feel pain. While the brain might be the pain center when you cut your finger or burn yourself, the brain itself does not have pain receptors and cannot feel pain. That doesn’t mean your head can’t hurt. The brain is surrounded by loads of tissues, nerves and blood vessels that are plenty receptive to pain and can give you a pounding headache.
  2. 80% of the brain is water. Your brain isn’t the firm, gray mass you’ve seen on TV. Living brain tissue is a squishy, pink and jelly-like organ thanks to the loads of blood and high water content of the tissue. So the next time you’re feeling dehydrated get a drink to keep your brain hydrated.
