    about your comment, paz3, on the big ditch of northern Arizona. You're right about it being such a big chasm, because it is: 277.7 miles long; over a vertical mile deep, and 4 to 18 miles wide, with an average of about 10 miles (say, there at Grand Canyon Village starting across at the Bright Angel Lodge, on the North Rim). Anyway, when people tell me, "Hey, Rich; I've been to your office and got to have a look-see," I always retort, "Yeah, which part?" Then they say, "The Grand Canyon. All of it!" "No," I reply, and keep them stringing along; "the canyon is so long you can only see about 1/5 of its size from any particular perspective." Then comes the usual comment, "Ah so, desk-a!" and anyone, even if one is not Japanese, comprehends the meaning. Thanks for posting your comments and I am happy for your support in these missive-diaries. More coming all the time. Tomorrow, for instance, will be a diary on the famous Acoma Pueblo. Stay tuned.

    Treat the world (yourself, and others) as part of a living organism. Everyone and everything will benefit.
