- ''In its solitariness the spirit asks,
What, in the way of value,
is the attainment of life?
And it can find no such value
till it has merged its individual claim
with that of the objective universe. ''
~Alfred North Whitehead
"And we are put on earth a little space,
That we may learn to bear the beams of love,''
"The force of mind
is only as great as its expression;
only as deep
as its power to expand and lose itself."
"If my thought dreams/could be seen/they'd probably put my head/in a guillotine/but it's alright Ma/it's life & life only''

There is a lot of talk about the assassination of JFK lately. Because tomorrow is the 50th anniversary of his murder. Which you can watch over and over again, thanks to Abraham Zapruder ( 1905 – 1970) who was perched atop a block of granite 72 feet from the street, his/… Read full post »
