"From this hour I ordain myself loos'd of limits and imaginary lines, going where I list, my own master total and absolute, Listening to others, considering well what they say, Pausing, searching, receiving, contemplating, Gently, but with undeniable will, divesting myself of the holds that would hold me."
Walt Whitman (1819-92)
"When I look back now over my life and call to mind what I might have had simply for taking and did not take, my heart is like to break."
Akhenaton (d. c.1354 BC)
And now, the current weather, from some random person we pulled off the street:

Only in Hopewell
I can just hear the conversation now.
"Hey Honey, didja put out the Chrissmas Decorashuns?"
"Didja put out the inflatable toy soldier?"
"Yep, right by the kitchen air conditioner."
"Didja put out the inflatable Snow Bear thing?"
"Yep, right outside the dining room so the company can see him."
"Didja put out the 12 foot inflatable Santa Claus?"
"Yep, and chained him to the tree by the street."
"Didja put that string of lights on the chair in the front yard?"
"Yep, plugged in and all lit up."
"Didja put out the Chrissmas motercycle?"
"Yep, all shiney and blue."
(Note: the motorcycle isn't just parked there, I really think it IS part of the display since it hasn't moved in two weeks.)
