Beyond the Blue Horizon – Rain Man Walking


1930 – George Olsen

Beyond the blue horizon
Waits a beautiful day
Goodbye to things that bore me
Joy is waiting for me

I see a new horizon
My life has only begun
Beyond the blue horizon
Lies a rising sun.

This will be an unusually long introduction to Roy’s Monday Morning Memo.

It was a long week; my wife on the West Coast where her dad is recovering from a stroke, I in West Virginia working with a client. We were finally back in the same house together last night catching up on news, gossip and tv. Then, just seconds before midnight – FLASH!!!. . . . . . . . . . . BOOOM!!! Wow! That was a close one!

Experience told us this was a storm. I should have known better.

The flash knocked out our internet service. (a wireless dsl). We couldn’t get back on-line until this morning. Checking my email, there was ONE unread item…The Monday Morning Memo which had arrived at 11:58 p.m. Coincidence? I think not.

You see, this is one of Roy’s emails that prove his wizard status through external sources. It is the world of science confirming (catching up with) what he’s been teaching these past few years.

Of course it arrived with an attached lightning bolt. (I wish I knew how he does that)

Oh, and before I turn you over to Roy, one last observation… On the drive home from Denver yesterday I was listening to the Rain Man soundtrack. Put together by Hans Zimmer, it’s one of the best driving cd’s you could own. The last song is "Beyond the Blue Horizon" performed by Lou Christie. The lyrics got me thinking about Broca’s area and how it can be harnessed to help eliminate the boring and the uninteresting. This is the song that was stuck in my phonological loop when the blast hit.

So, take a look at this week’s Memo…it’s posted next!
