  • Old Frank was famous in his community for being the best fisherman.
    Ask Benji, he saw him unload his catch time and again.
    Every day, Frank always brought in his limit and these were always prize fish.
    After decades of speculation, beautiful, kind, and honest Rosalyn, the local sherrif, invited herself along to find out what Frank's secret was.

    Special lures? A secret pool? "A cast of thousands?"
    These two lifelong friends leave in a rowboat before dawn and after an hour Frank stops rowing.
    He opens the ice chest, removes a stick of dynamite, lights it and throws it into the water.
    After the explosion, dozens of large fish surface and Frank starts gathering them.
    Rosalyn flashes her badge and says, "Frank! You can't do this!"

    Frank lights another stick of dynamite, tosses it to Rosalyn and says,
    "Are we gonna fish or talk?"

    "...or sing of love, sweet Rosalyn?" ;->
    Love to you dear readers (and writers and logarithmic arithmatickers).

    On the photo and the math of ONE so fine....

    Imaginary "i times i" = a very real "negative one."
    We've all played that poorly written part in life's drama.

    However " ( i x i x i x i ) is an oh so very Positive One:
    From Sayings of Light and Love:
    The conditions of a solitary bird are five:
    The first, that it flies to the highest point;
    The second, that it does not suffer for company,
    not even of its own kind;
    The third, that it aims its beak to the skies;
    The fourth, that it does not have a definite color;
    The fifth, that it sings very softly.
