And Lot's wife, of course, was told not to look back where all those people and their homes had been. But she did look back, and I love her for that, because it was so human.
So she was turned into a pillar of salt. So it goes.
Kurt Vonnegut (Slaughterhouse-Five)

Where do I get my ideas from? You might as well have asked that of Beethoven. He was goofing around in Germany like everybody else, and all of a sudden this stuff came gushing out of him. It was music. I was goofing around like everybody else in Indiana, and all of a sudden stuff came gushing out. It was disgust with civilization.
Kurt Vonnegut

Sometimes I think it is a great mistake to have matter that can think and feel. It complains so. By the same token, though, I suppose that boulders and mountains and moons could be accused of being a little too phlegmatic.

Each one of those had juice to add to my day.

---I keep thinking of Lot's wife;
"I was told not to look, but what if I miss something BIG--Oh dear, oh, dear---what do I do?
Maybe just a quick little peek?....."

I bet Vonnegut was something in school...

Thank you, Lilo!
