in reply to Ecclesiastes

I think the Byrds song, Turn, Turn, Turn, which was based on Ecclisiastes than it does to Ecclesiastes, was the real inspiration here.

and time foreach @purpose unless $heaven; # :-/

The actual line was: "And a time to every purpose, under Heaven." Here's my try at it:

And, 1 * time for map { $Heaven/$_ } @purpose
-sauoq
"My two cents aren't worth a dime.";

    Actually the Byrds got it from either Pete Seeger or from the Weavers (Pete Seeger was a member of that group too).

    I am only relying on my very untrustworthy memory here.

    Cheers;
