Is there some meaning to this life?
What purpose lies behind this strife?

Whence do we come, where are we bound?
These cold questions echo and resound
through each day, each lonely night.
We long to find the splendid light
that will cast a revelatory beam
upon the meaning of the human dream.

Courage, love, friendship,
compassion, and empathy
lift us above the simple beasts
and define humanity.


From The Book of Counted Sorrows

Just some obscure writing that I thought some ppl on here might enjoy It cums from a book that I REALLY want, but most likely will never have.

Sorry to hear 'bout the weekend. Sounds like that was the general concensus here in the blog world. Glad I could be of some help.

I don'think so, for the price it should be gold plated As far as B&N I don't think there is one anywhere near me.
