Yep, I know we've been in the month for a bit. Some of us more intensely in the month than others. And for a particular set of someones who are experiencing it a bit too keenly: comfort, hope, peace and love.
The quote: "God loved the birds and invented trees. Man loved the birds and invented cages." —Jacques Deval
The quote: "Sometimes creativity is a compulsion, not an ambition." —Ed Norton
The quote: "The fact that an opinion has been widely held is no evidence whatever that it is not utterly absurd; indeed in view of the silliness of mankind, a widespread belief is more likely to be foolish than sensible." —Bertrand Russell (1872-1970)
The quote: "Hard work never killed anybody, but why take the chance?" —Edgar Bergen (1930-1978)
Ah levity...what would we do without it? Weep all the time? Maintain the constant flat? Those are no ways to exist.
The quote: "Any man who afflicts the human race with ideas must be prepared to see them misunderstood." —H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)
An observation: We learn things in the course of time, and the things we've put on paper up to that point sometimes gain new meaning the light of the things we've learned. Sometimes too, we can go into the past (on paper) and imbue the things we find there with additional meaning in light of the new information. It adds a new dimension, but for the very life of me, I wish the new information had not come into existence.
Peace and love. A whole lot of love.
