Since these guys (and gals) have arrived on scene, my morning routine consists of coffee, tripod, cable, and patience. 

Guildenstern: I don’t believe in it anyway.
Rosencrantz: What?
Guildenstern: England.
Rosencrantz: Just a conspiracy of cartographers, then?

"The African American Sculpture" at the State Capitol, Columbia SC

Sculptor Ed Dwight

"I fear my Thisbe’s promise is forgot!—
And thou, O Wall, O sweet, O lovely Wall,
That stand’st between her father’s ground and mine.
Thou Wall, O Wall, O sweet and lovely Wall,
Show me thy chink to blink through with mine eyne!”

"Me and the moon stayed up all night, I brought the whiskey he brought the light."

- Gaelic Storm

"I found the poems in the fields and only wrote them down."

- John Clare

"As I was going over the Cork and Kerry Mountains…"

"A ribbon at a time…"

"As all the heavens were a bell…"

“Come Home!”

When wintry winds are no more heard, 

And joy’s in every bosom, 

When summer sings in every bird, 

And shines in every blossom, 

When happy twilight hours are long, 

Come home, my love, and think no wrong! 

When berries gleam above the stream 

And half the fields are yellow, 

Come back to me, my joyous dream, 

The world hath not thy fellow! 

And I will make thee Queen among 

The Queens of summer and of song.

Mary Elizabeth Coleridge


“Scotch whisky is made from barley and the morning dew on angel’s nipples.”

"Stay for me: where souls do couch on flowers…"

"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster…."

- F Nietzsche
