I rode my bike to work again.
I like the winter rye grass
Our roses are starting to bloom again
I left my wife a poem by Walt Whitman on the coffee pot…..
Here is a poem by Kurt Vonnegut that I love
True story, Word of Honor:
Joseph Heller, an important and funny writer
and I were at a party given by a billionaire
on Shelter Island.
I said, “Joe, how does it make you feel
to know that our host only yesterday
may have made more money
than your novel ‘Catch-22′
has earned in its entire history?”
And Joe said, “I’ve got something he can never have.”
And I said, “What on earth could that be, Joe?”
And Joe said, “The knowledge that I’ve got enough.”
Not bad! Rest in peace!”
