“Only that day dawns to which we are awake.
“There is more day to dawn.
“The sun is but a morning star.”
—Henry David Thoreau (“Walden”)
Sidebar: Melba Wixom, my Waukegan High School honors English III teacher, wrote Thoreau’s quote in my 1970 yearbook. I never expected that 40 years later I’d remember what she penned, type it on a computer, and use it in a blog!
