I love this. I don't know if I would say it is beautiful, but it touches me.
I also love this. I think this is beautiful. I would love this to be my parlor, but the crow picture would not fit in. Yet the crow picture is totally all about my blog. And my head. I think this explains a lot. But I am the only one who benefits from the explanation.
The person who lives in this parlor would like this:
This is by Rene' Lalique and I think it is perfectly exquisite, but I would be very uncomfortable wearing it.
Well, I am just rambling today and trying to settle some of my thoughts.

To me, this is like mourning the passing of the Measles epidemic cuz then you get fewer days off school.
I cannot see ANY connection between the popularity of electronic publishing and the death of libraries, Mr. Patterson. Please explain that to me.
And let me explain to you that an epub is not a book. It is an electronic file.
There are no more engraved tablets because: books!! Oh, wait a sec. Cemeteries, corner stones, memorial plaques, etc.
But I did see that story about the monks picketing Gutenberg because they would lose their jobs illuminating manuscripts.
There are no more wagon trains cuz of Amtrak. Well, they aren't doing so well. Maybe trucks and airplanes would fit better. And cargo crates and Wal-mart.
And, seriously, did you finish Blood Meridian? I kinda can't see it. But I did read Along Came a Spider if you want to talk about literature.
"Witty." "Exquisite." "Crazy good read." "Read it straight through." "Didn't want anyone to get hurt." "Someone should have been shot." "Some of the sex was a little strong." "Fast, fun read." "Has the makings of a great novel." Oh, wait. That's my work.
