Good Friday


Hope is definitely not the same thing as optimism. It is not the conviction that something will turn out well, but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.

Nice. Who said that?

Some guy named French Proverb:). He was probably inspired by Aristotle's "Hope is a waking dream." Nothing against Aristotle, but I prefer Mr. Proverb's imagery.

I just noticed the detail in the clouds. Very nice, spd.

Havel is one of my peeps. That's right, my peoples is known for thinking deep thoughts and, when trapped in an avalanche, drinking the equivalent of a keg of beer and peeing our way to freedom! Booyah!
