I'm vacationing in Florida this month and giving little time to the blog, but I hate to let more than a week go by without touching base. So here are the few thoughts that have occurred.
"If we're all just pieces in a game of chess, then what does it matter if I'm a pawn and youre the king?"
"Why was I born? I don't know -- beyond it being a rather obvious attempt to distract my attention."
"What you discover about life's shell game is that it's hardest to follow the pea when you're the pea."
"I don't know if I'm the unwitting agent of a master conspiracy, but I'm sure the unwitting agent of something."
A reflection on marriage. "It is sad when someone from whom you could never part without one last kiss becomes someone from whom you could never part -- and so never kiss."
"To trade a childhood wonder for a plausible explanation -- is there a worst trade one makes in life?"
"If you would give up a breath-taking wonder, insist upon a breath-taking explanation."
