Today is Lewis Carroll's birthday, and I decided to post this little clipping I found in a newspaper advertisement. I had it taped inside my high school locker in the 1960's, later dry mounted to a piece of illustration board and tacked to a bulletin board. These days I sometimes remember it when I'm slogging along on the treadmill. Certainly in my life if I don't keep on keeping at it - whatever "it" is - I start to fall behind. Whether it's reading, drawing, painting, or trying to keep reasonably fit, unless I persist, I lose ground. A high school wrestler in one of the classes I taught once said that his philosophy was that you are always one of three things: falling behind, staying the same, or making progress. I hope I don't fall behind in the things that are important.
