Here’s a lovely poem I came across by June Jordan called: Niagara Falls, one of my favorite places in the world. See my previous post http://sporterhall.wordpress.com/2014/07/03/did-you-know-7/ I added a couple photos to coincide with this beautiful poem that June Jordan dedicated to Leonard Bernstein. Enjoy!
And in the first place the flowing of the river
went about its business like a hulking
shallows curling ankle deep to spume
and in the second place the flowing river
and falling fell stupendous
a breakneck cliff invisible behind
the cataclysmic streaming burst apart
into spray that birds
attempted to delay by calmly
playing in the serpentine formations
of the frothing aftermath
and then in my place stood a fool
surprised by power that wins only
peace as when the sliding clouds collide
into a new perfection

Hey! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any trouble with hackers?
My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing several weeks of
hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
Hi! Thankfully, I have not had that issue, but I do know of another blogger that had their site hacked and he lost all of his work. Thankfully, several bloggers came to his rescue and re-posted some of his work. He was able to eventually get things restored. Obviously, backing up all of your work is your first line of defense. As far as the hackers, the only thing I can say is to protect your blog account with a very difficult password. WordPress offers more information on this and ways to protect against hackers. Hope this helps!
I was suggested this blog by way of my cousin. I’m no longer sure whether or not this put up is written via him as
no one else realize such certain about my problem. You’re amazing!
