Orpheus hesitated beside the black river.
With so much to look forward to, he looked back.
We think he sang then, but the song is lost.
At least he had seen once more the beloved back.
I say the song went this way: *O prolong
Now the sorrow if that is all there is to prolong.*
--Donald Justice, from "There is a Gold Light in Certain Old Paintings"
I cannot seperate her
from the beautiful body.
She has charm and a very
gay spirit; in every way
she's attractive. Intelligent
and she reads good books.
But it's the faultless body
that forces me to make a fool
of myself, pursuing a virtuous
girl I could never possess.
--James Laughlin (1914-1997)
"We're all soldiers in the war against entropy."
"I spent an interesting evening recently with a grain of salt."

Thanksgiving Trip to NYC:
Note to self:
"The Age of Anxiety"- whoever came up with that was dead on, especially with all the economy questions being asked.
if you're volunteering at a function that helps the homeless, try not to look like a homeless person.
"Mm-mmm, time for pie"
"No why. Just here."
-John Cage, Life Magazine's "Why are we here"
"Eat bread and salt and always tell the truth."
You taught me language; and my profit on't is, I know how to curse; the red plague rid you, for learning me your language!
--Caliban, The Tempest 1.2
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less travelled by,
Tripped over a branch, and broke my nose
I hear America singing, and doggone
if someone's not flat. One of the tenors,
Open here I flung the shutter,
when with many a flirt and flutter
I shot it dead, and then it drop upon the floor
Now, the Raven 'nevermore'
Two roads diverged,
but the one I wanted to take had a detour sign on it, dammit to hell.
A rock sat in the woods, thinking,
for many years, of many things.
Realized God and His plan
How to perfect life for plant and man
but it was a rock, and rocks can't speak
so it had to keep it to itself
an ant crossed the sidewalk
in its busy little industry
i saw reflected the laws of
god and man
'enough of this' I thought
and crushed its tiny head
