The poem Green Grow The Rushes by The Scottish poet Robert Burns came into my head this morning. I added it to the Extra Credit portion of the D-mail. Then I was dancing to John Schaefer's Afternoon Sound Alternative on KGNU. There was a pause and I did a sun salutation. While I was in cobra pose a Celtic song came on the radio. It was a famous bagpipe tune. I was in a deep stretch and I realized Robert Burns would have known this tune. The celtic bagpipe tune turned into ska. It was a song by the Celtic Ska band The Trojans. I yelled out spontaneously "Burns!" I was screaming for Robbie Burns. I was saying that the stretch I was in burns! I was saying that all of existence, in a moment like this, burns!
