...to stand on the meeting of two eternities, the past and future, which is precisely the present moment; to toe that line. -H D Thoreau

We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be
to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. -

  17. I've dated at least one sociopath, and know of at least one(charming, highly-educated, but dangerously manipulative) in my own(extended)family, too.
    Love the music paper you write on. I read the comment you replied to, that it's a work-in-progress, Jayne.
    Sa-weeet!
