Quote of the day...er...week...umm...hey, look, a quote!!

Tibi gratias agimus quod nihil fumas.

It says "...freedom of...", not "...freedom from...".

Nolite te bastardes carburundorum!

"It's amazing to me how many people think that voting to have the government give poor people money is compassion. Helping poor and suffering people is compassion. Voting for our government to use guns to give money to help poor and suffering people is immoral self-righteous bullying laziness. People need to be fed, medicated, educated, clothed, and sheltered, and if we're compassionate we'll help them, but you get no moral credit for forcing other people to do what you think is right. There is great joy in helping people, but no joy in doing it at gunpoint." - Penn Jillette

Rootless Tree

I often use music - my own and other people's - to speak for me. I believe there's something Universal in song, something that lets us communicate beyond words, across language and culture, that speaks to shared experience.

My friend Kit pointed me to this song sometime last year - I listen to it fairly frequently. There's something about the sweetness of the female singer's face that reminds me of Kit...and the juxtaposition of the lovely voices and music, poignant and powerful, and the vehemence and language of the lyrics tug at my heart.

Music, song, one part of person.

I love music, I can't leave it in my life.

Oh God Kyddryn!
She's gone Rootless Tree!

This is the musical A-Bomb in my arsenal
If you receive a Rootless Tree from me you have effed up, pretty much beyond repair.

It's even a joke amongst my sisters and I...
( mock convo)
Did he really eff up?
You gonna give him the Rootless Tree?
Hells yes!
Lord have mercy on his soul! :)

Gotta love Damien Rice
Feckin' oirishmen and his red wine music!

Peace ~ Rene
