herein : the new year
drawn by Thomas Digges, 1546 - 1595, astronomer & mathematician, the first to postulate (wunnerful word, postulate) the Copernican system in English, and the first to postulate (aaahhh) the dark night sky paradox [look it up in Wikipedia (I did) but basically it says that anywhere you looked into the sky, the infinity of stars means that there will be a star in your line of sight, and that means that the night sky would be covered in stars, and therefore completely white, rather than mostly dark] - in any case, whatever light comes to you from wherever, may your 2012 year bring you all it damn well ought to - cheers to y'all - and with the sincere affection of the printer/poet. . .
