Quote of the Hour

Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could; some blunders and absurdities have crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; you shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.
- Ralph Waldo Emerson


Purple hearts for Girlie

Most days

Sometimes the feeling is just too much to bear

Snowy silence

Trees and Snow by Ansel Adams 1933

Please Stop

I actually did "Laugh Out Loud" after reading this.

Looking at this photo reminds me of having a conversation with a “Close Talker.” The uneasiness of someone you don’t want to kiss being that close to me is very unnerving.

Why do they do it?

Don’t they realize that most of us want to yell; BACK OFF CYCLOPS!

Well, I do, anyway.

The ax, water and fire damaged piano that appeared this past weekend on a sandbar in Biscayne Bay (Miami Florida) was a puzzling mystery to many until today.  It turns out that The Piano was placed there in the dark of night by Holly Hunter and Harvey Keitel. 

When asked why they pulled such a stunt they answered by saying the placement of The Piano is as much of a mystery as the movie.
