The Heavy Equipment Operator
I am, and have always been, a heavy equipment operator.
Always moving something - a mountain, a river or an idea - from here to there.
From the old-timers I learned. Everything.
And then I learned to change Everything into new Things.
One day I built a machine that traded.
One day I built a machine that built machines that traded.
One day I measured the rate of change of an ever-changing cycle and
threw all, save one, of the machines away.
The next day I built a new machine. And a while later, another.
The new machines all require operators.
Which is as it should be.
In memory of my grandfather, Floyd Grahm 8/26/1910 - 11/4/2005
