“Crossing the Rubicon” is a popular idiom meaning to pass a point of no return. It refers to Julius Caesar’s 49 BC crossing of the Rubicon River, to advance on Rome, which was considered an act of war. The phrase has survived to refer to any individual or group committing itself irrevocably to a risky or revolutionary course of action, or position.  When your opinion is on the Internet, man it’s out there!  There is no takin’ it back.

Coincidentally, I share a birthday with Julius Caesar. — Gary Cornelius

      Hi, Jeanne-Marie — Has it really been that long since I posted a blog entry? October 8th? I have the next one partially written and will try to complete and post it soon. It’s about a clash of cultures bewteen old beliefs and practices and the new. Stay tuned! I’m in Durban right now for the long Thanksgiving holiday weekend, at a hostel overlooking the Indian Ocean.

    Hi, how are you doing? Fall is here and some hard rain. So much has happened in the park since you left. The last time I tried to send you an email, it wouldn’t go so let me know if you get this and I will bring you up to date. Hope all is going well. Carolyn

      Carolyn — Got your nice email at my other email address and will read it more thoroughly over the weekend and respond, probably not until Monday since I don’t have Internet access on the weekends — where I live is too far from a cell phone tower.
