    I think, and I may be wrong that the mystery of life is somehow in the Author's mind. How many friends we might have made it's all a question of circumstance, the where and the when.It's like Dons No man is an island too. And another quotation, that an enemy is out there, turn him into a friend.

    When One Writes or Paints a picture...This comes from the HEART.
    If others choose to respond or view This...These reactions come from the SOUL.
    How One decides to *PERCEIVE IT ALL...IS entirely up to themselves.

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
