Happy Birthday, Chuck!

Oh, and Happy Birthday, Abe, too!

Wow, it was a good day to be born, wasn't it? These two men made a hell of a difference in the world. I raise my glass to their memories.

Cheers fellas!

The Lesson

I keep on dying again.
Veins collapse, opening like the
Small fists of sleeping
Memory of old tombs,
Rotting flesh and worms do
Not convince me against
The challenge. The years
And cold defeat live deep in
Lines along my face.
They dull my eyes, yet
I keep on dying,
Because I love to live.

Maya Angelou

I needed that. Thank you Maya
