Notes 16 Dec

“We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”  – George Bernard Shaw

Most folks, if they look at my behavior, would conclude that I write, am therefore a writer.  Whether a good one or not would be an open question.

Schopenhauer. “For a German it is even good to have somewhat lengthy words in his mouth, for he thinks slowly, and they give him time to reflect.”[209]

Schopenhauer went so far as to protest using the pronoun “it” in reference to animals because that led to treatment of them as though they were inanimate things.[234)

Trudeau pere et fils  

Maybe Hillary was right and they are deplorable. We nonetheless need to share this landscape with them, and they with us.

“My will is a whisper,
your moan a method,
your sin.”

— Niyi Osundare [Words Catch Fire]

The sallow glow of
sodium street lights is one
with the balmy fog 

Literature is beyond politics. Everything is, except politics.

Let’s face the music … 

Let’s face the music and dance at DuckDuckGo

Let’s Face The Music And Dance
Seth MacFarlane

There may be trouble ahead
But while there’s moonlight
And music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance

Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to pay the bill 

And while we still got a chance 

Let’s face the music and dance

Soon, we’ll be without the moon
Hummin’ a different tune and then 

There may be teardrops to shed
So, while there’s moonlight
And music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance

Before the fiddlers have fled
Before they ask us to come up with the bill
And while we still got that chance
Let’s face that music and dance

Soon, we’ll be without the moon
Hummin’ a different tune and then
There may be teardrops to shed
So, while there’s moonligh
And music and love and romance
Let’s face the music and dance, dance
Let’s face the music, that music lovely music
Let’s face the music and dance
