A few moments ago, my brain was struggling to find the word 'martial'; there was a discussion in a TV show about sport's importance in the universe, and its persona in colleges (or universities), and my mind hearkened to something I'd thought a while ago, (a couple months), about martial skills probably being part of the curriculum of ancient colleges, except this time, though I could remember this thought, I couldn't remember the phrase 'martial skills' or more specifically, the word 'martial' - I then zoned out...  how many seconds? minutes?  passed.  And suddenly the little messenger, researcher, I'd sent out to ruminate my file cabinets, (what a library I've amassed!), came back with his chit of paper, and there enscribed:  martial.   As time goes by, I realize more and more how much I rely on the little messengers.  Thank god they still find their way back... don't get lost along the way!
