KillgoreTrout On February - 2 - 2013

Every sunrise is an analogue of life. To wait for the sun, and after great anticipation, it’s sudden appearance is magnificent. I have seen many and there is always a promise there. A promise that we will be blessed with another
day, another chance at perfecting our humanity. Another wondrous display pointing to the possibilities within each of us. Even cloudy mornings shed light. They break the darkness and help us continue through the trials and tribulations, the sorrows and joys that only light makes possible.

Such light that is only made possible by the goodness and knowledge of those that come before us. Those that have taken the test and passed without doubt, those who freely gave the lessons learned.

Lover of books (especially the classics), all kinds of books from novels, poetry, essay collections, fiction and nonfiction and a big Kurt Vonnegut fan. I am a secular humanist and technically an atheist.....Taoist.

    You will have to excuse the 80s hair do and padded shoulders. My friend (yes, I am proud to call her that) Maura O’Connell, singing “If You Love Me” at a festival in Cork. Her voice is spectacular. I don’t think there is any better.

      Oh AB -- she is spectacular indeed! This song has been running through my mind since I found your post. Beautiful!

      Thank you so much. As a tribute to bito -- all I can hope is that someone loved him in person as much as we all loved him here. This just makes me ache hoping he has an ‘eternity’ with someone who cares.

      Thank you so much as well for introducing me to this amazing woman! What a voice! I’m so glad you know her!!! If you’re in contact tell her she has a whole new fan base!

    • Nice AB. Was this in Cork, Ireland? County Cork?

    • foodchain says:

      AB, wow! pretty damn good friends you have my dear! I want to go there!!

      • AlphaBitch says:

        Ah, Food -- this is from 1986. Don’t think I’d like to go back then, no matter what. Yes, I am so very very lucky to have met and come to know some really talented people. And many of them are on the Planet as you know!
