...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. -
T. S. Eliot

15.3.10



I once thought that you would rob
the truly appreciative minds
by laying down for the last time.
Rubbing your fingers to your temple instead of the
large hand you would faint in.” -kb

Life and death fit so very close together
and the hand of god looks more like a fist.

    Reminds me of a stamp I use once in awhile:

    Life before Death, why Wait?????
