Fun In The Park

“Recent research suggests that regularly seeing good friends in the local park will bring a greater boost to mental health than having a shiny German automobile parked outside your retirement home. My candid advice to aging Americans would be to use your hard-earned cash to invest much more in friendships than in material items.”
Prof.Andrew Oswald

Under The City

Every city has a sex and an age which have nothing to do with demography. Rome is feminine. So is Odessa. London is a teenager, an urchin, and, in this, hasn't changed since the time of Dickens. Paris, I believe, is a man in his twenties in love with an older woman.”

Fairy House

“There may be fairies at the bottom of the garden. There is no evidence for it, but you can't prove that there aren't any, so shouldn't we be agnostic with respect to fairies?”
Richard Dawkins

Amber Fields of Grain


“It is all a question of sensitiveness. Brute force and overbearing may make a terrific effect. But in the end, that which lives by delicate sensitiveness. If it were a question of brute force, not a single human baby would survive for a fortnight. It is the grass of the field, most frail of all things, that supports all life all the time. But for the green grass, no empire would rise, no man would eat bread: for grain is grass; and Hercules or Napoleon or Henry Ford would alike be denied existence.”
D.H. Lawrence

Fish Face

"Have you ever gone a fishin' on a bright and sunny day and see the little fishies swimmin' in and out the bay? With your hands in your pockets and your pockets in your pants, all the little fishies do the hoochie-coochie dance! Shimee shimee shimee shake shake"

“Just living is not enough... One must have sunshine, freedom, and a little flower.”
Hans Christian Andersen
