The titular lines are Walt Whitman, from his Carol of Words (1856). Apparently, some saltwater buddha just set the new world record on surfing the largest wave ever. Worth noting, although I have nothing more to say on this matter.
Tonight, now that I'm back from Birmingham, it's off to Athens, Georgia to see the band Beach House at the Georgia Theater. It should be a good show, possibly a terrific show, but right now I have nothing more to say on this matter, either.
