The Spinning Top

In book eleven of Vergil’s Aeneid, Amata, Lavinia’s mother, is compared to a spinning top as she realizes that Turnus and Aeneas will fight and that her daughter will be the prize.  Wanting to emulate the ancient epics in every way possible, my top went spinning today, and I ended up in the LA ER with vertigo.

I hope to be back on the road, with my loyal wife as driver, in a day or two.  Even in the epics, they have to take a rest.
