The Last Last Word—for discerning readers—by author Gregory Zeigler.

Something good to read. I was enjoying Apsley Cherry-Garrard’s The Worst Journey in the World when literature met reality. While reading about the ill-fated Scott party suffering minus thirty-degree temps and raging blizzards trying to reach the South Pole, I was staying at a friend’s rural home near Driggs, Idaho with the wind howling and snow blowing sideways. The next morning, we were snowed in and my friend got me out by snowmobile.

We saw the Emperors standing all together under the barrier cliff some hundreds of yards away…After incredible effort and hardship we were witnessing a marvel of the natural world, and we were the first and only men who had ever done so.

And this good news to be found at the Wall Street Journal.

Nuclear Fusion Breakthrough Accelerates Quest to Unlock Limitless Energy Source.

Something I wrote.  “I learned online that in Lincoln County where Beauford Oil and Gas spilled the acid, they also had methane gas in well water, and a gas well blowout, all in, like, fifteen months. Great for the climate, don’t you think? This (fracking) is like a gold rush in Pennsylvania.” Rare as Earth.

Something to consider. Ourbest days and deeds may still be ahead of us. (Chinese food not included.)

Something to do. Enjoy good health and great happiness in 2023.

Happy reading. Gregory Zeigler, author of the Jake Goddard and Susan Brand eco-thriller series.
