YE GREAT BATTLES,
great battles I say,
What’s the half price
battle of the day?
There’s a happy hour battle,
and an dieting battle too,
choose your battle
before it chooses you.
We suggest the “fight to the death,
between youth and age”,
or the hormonal coaster ride,
around a teenage.
There one that says:
Your not worth a dime,
and one who grinds you down
but that’s what makes you shine.
One great battle!
Free for all who wake up.
Hell! Get two for the price of one,
if your parents split up.
And at these low prices
you can scream, squabble and bray,
Cause there’s a back-stock of battles,
if your battle goes away.
and you are one of them. ]]>
Has my book.
She laughed at my note
hoping she liked abstract thinking.]]>
Children of ages three through nine,
Twinkle your noses and shine up your shine.
I’m looking for the girl and boy to star in my next book.
Come to the casting call with your parents in-line.
November 4th details.

We let go of our viscous history to find our new way yet we still create history. ]]>
Heard that today. Seeing how the music, no matter how horrendous it is, comes from our expression of the human spirit, I’d have to agree. Thank you Mavis for that great thought.
Here’s a look out my window the other night.]]>
I just finished Cather in the Rye and noticed that the psychotherpist threw out some infintely wise comments while Holden was basically passing out toward the end of the book. I love them but other than that Holden was a #$@!.
“Many, many men have been just as troubled morally and spiritually as you are right now. Happily, some of them kept records of their troubles. You’ll learn from them — if you want to. Just as someday, if you have something to offer, someone will learn something from you. It’s a beautiful, reciprocal arrangement. And it isn’t education. It’s history. It’s poetry.
I’m not trying to tell you that only educated and scholarly men are able to contribute something valuable to the world. It’s not so. But I do say that educated and scholarly men, if they’re brilliant and creative to begin with — which, unfortunately, is rarely the case — tend to leave infinitely more valuable records behind them than men do who are merely brilliant and creative. They tend to express themselves more clearly, and they usually have a passion for following their thoughts through to the end. And — most important — nine times out of ten they have more humility than the unscholarly thinker.
Something else an academic education will do for you. If you go along with it any considerable distance, it’ll begin to give you an idea what size mind you have. What it’ll fit and, maybe, what it won’t. After a while, you’ll have an idea what kind of thoughts your particular size mind should be wearing. For one thing, it may save you an extraordinary amount of time trying on ideas that don’t suit you, aren’t becoming to you. You’ll begin to know your true measurements and dress your mind accordingly.”
- J.D. Salinger, The Catcher In The Rye (p. 246-247)]]>
