"Moderate giftedness has been made worthless by the printing press and radio and television and satellites and all that. A moderately gifted person who would have been a community treasure a thousand years ago has to give up, has to go into some other line of work, since modern communications put him or her into daily competition with nothing but world’s champions."
Kurt Vonnegut, Jr., novelist (1922-2007)
‘Henceforth I ask not good-fortune, I myself am good-fortune.’ ~Walt Whitman
As the sad news continues out of Japan even as cleanup is still going on in New Zealand and I am sure there are other catastrophes I am unaware of I am focused on how lucky I am. I know the universe can shift very quickly so I will enjoy every moment I am able to.
