I’ve been watching this go about my blog-feed today, on Science Fiction, Transmedia, and Fiction and on Things Matter and as I’m reading through, it just looks like a fun thing to do. And really, I want a few fun things at the top of this page. Gene’O and I have put to rest the other situation, and though it was necessary to publicly address the situation, I’m quite ready to let the negativity make way on down the page. So here I go:

THREE QUOTES:

  • “Humanity has advanced, when it has advanced, not because it has been sober, responsible, and cautious, but because it has been playful, rebellious, and immature.” -Tom Robbins
  • “I love songs about horses, railroads, land, Judgment Day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heartbreak and love. And Mother. And God.”-Johnny Cash
  • “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what. You rarely win, but sometimes you do.”-Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird
