Precursors – Alastair Morrison – Part I

NOTE ED: If you can not view the Quicktime video above, CLICK HERE.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

In memoriam Alastair Morrison, born Peking, 25th August 1915, died Canberra, 4th August 2009.

In Memoriam – In Development

While learning Drupal I’m building a temporary site home page.

As you will see I want to remember those who have gone before & I am in need of good personal photos and reminiscences  of Bhaskar & Lupo especially.

I’d also like to mention Brian Beresford who was an early traveller, a lovely man & an excellent photographer, see his archive at Nomad Picture Library

They will all have their own single simple memorial page leading off from these  small home page photos IN MEMORIAM.
