NEW New Look

Having spent the better part of the entire week obsessing about this stupid little piece of world wide turf, I’m happy to report that I’m just about over it… I spent a bit of money and got myself a brand-spankin’-new-never-before-seen-fresh-out-o’-the-box premium theme.

Sorrow is knowledge, those that know the most must mourn the deepest, the tree of knowledge is not the tree of life. All who joy would win must share it. Happiness was born a twin. But words are things, and a small drop of ink, falling like dew, upon a thought, produces that which makes thousands, perhaps millions, think.
