I have entered, some time ago, into the place in my life where I know that my last day could occur at any time. Actually, that has always been the case but we humans tend to think we can will that time to stay way out in our future.

The ‘stealth candidacy’ of Hillary Rodham Clinton (that we have all known was going to be declared) gets a little bit more exposure over the coming week-end, or so we’re led to believe. She will peek out from behind the mask on Sunday afternoon according to press reports but only in a pre-recorded tape.
