Whether Tempter Sent or Tempest Tossed

To live in this world, you must be able to do three things:
to love
what is mortal; to hold it against your bones knowing your own life
depends on it; and, when the time comes to let it go, to let it go.
– Mary Oliver

Acoustic Nirvana! Que bueno para Dia de los Muertos! I have to admit, though, when I first saw the still on the screen, before I hit "play," I thought the big hair belonged to Janis.

That lad had some very bad posture.
Good musician and arranger though.

Wendy: Joplin? That's hysterical!

Troll: Yes, unfortunately the world weighed too heavily on his shoulders and we are worse off because of it.

Wow, that was awkward said...

What a waste, eh?

One of my favorite things to say when I walk into a crowded room is, "It smells like teen spirit in here."

Great combo and happy day to you. I already have some amazing pictures, more tomorrow!.

I'm proposing a new magazine called "Stop" to replace the dreary old National Review.

And, YOU are Editor-In-Chief or whatever the big wheel at magazines is called.

WTWA: And mine: "Here I am now, entertain me."

A.B.: Can't wait for photos!

Troll: Good. 'Cause I need a job.

Wicked: Did you and the cats give out candy to the chillruns or just put hexes on 'em?

Thursday: Likewise!

Troll: Okay, yeah. The freakin' Gators rule . . . There. You happy?

Aunty: I think he knew. He'd been trying for a while.
