Maybe Fenn is handing out arrowheads as a consolation prize to all those who have participated in his Thrill of the Chase.........

Maybe he knows that someone has THE solve, and come next spring, it's all over. So..... he doesn't want any of us to go away mad for having wasted so much time, energy, effort, and money playing his game....... Thus he's handing out arrowheads so we all can have something to remember the countless hours of searching, researching, debating, pondering, postulating, scheming, etc.........

Or maybe he's just trying to offload some tonnage before he dies so Peggy doesn't have to mess with it..........

the letter combination "AL" in that order or reverse, seems to occur alot in the poem, 8 by my count

Not far, but too far to walk

there are a lot of "to"'s in the poem, and one "too". does this perhaps hint at the word "also"?

there are 2 occurrences each of "all" and "so". what i find most interesting is that in both cases they are in the same sentence

"halt" and "cease" share a lot in meaning. there is going to be a connection between these 2 points of the poem. itootrt (in the opinion of this random thinker)

if you looked into the mirror of the poem, maybe you would see William Marvin Fenn

There are a lot of opposing words (mirrored?) Begin-end, far-near, walk-halt, warm-cold, brave-meek,new-old, etc. The poem may be about reconciling opposing forces or ideas or concepts.

in my war for me, in the story when Fenn begins to explain what happened in the year his awareness took its first few steps, he mentions his body being tired and then there are multiple references to altitude

itootrt (in the opinion of this random thinker) this relates to <i>tired and weak</i> giving us the proper elevation, and it doesn't do it yesterday or tomorrow, but today, in the present

part of the idea being as you climb higher, you get more tired/weak, and the oxygen gets thinner

He's carrying a soldering iron!" and started laughing, and everybody else started laughing, I could just say, "That's right, it's a soldering iron. The soldering iron of justice." Then everybody would get real quiet and ashamed, because they made fun of the soldering iron of justice, and I could probably hit them up for a free drink." </i></b> - Jack Handey
