William Harvey: He Found Vessels Make Round Trips With Their Cargo. No Foolin'

Born today was William Harvey

Who  said our  blood in circles flows.

To and from the heart  (How Marvy!)

Through veins and arteries it goes.


With this birthday-in-verse post, I too have come full circle. What started with William Harvey now ends with William Harvey  I hope you have enjoyed reading these as much as I have writing them.   Thanks to all the Gentle Readers who stopped by on occasion. And a special thanks to  4zen, MargaretSerious, Jack, and the Weather Girl whose comments have made it all worthwhile.

  • From the headline, I thought he was in the garbage scow business, while I thought he was in medicine, which he was.

    And there was always the grade school conundrum that the pulmonary artery and vein had blood of the wrong color.

    So are you retiring, or just need to come up with another 365 people to fete?

  • An epic achievement, AW. Congratulations! What a wonderful journey. Don't stop now...

  • You're welcome! Thank you for a journey that managed to be both educational and delightful.
