Indeed, Bruce, time always presses...  Partly it's the nature of the 
beast, and it's partly its that several of us are at the career stages 
that naturally see us as beasts of burden.  But time cycles.  Time has 
echoes.  Perhaps we can return for some spirited discussions again soon! 
  Perhaps we just need the provocation after recouping our energies.

Best,
James
