To the artist...

 "To the artist, the writer, the pianist, the actor, the speaker: Fame is NOT a sign of greatness. Fame is a sign that you've got a lot of eyes on you, and that's it. Can we stop grasping and chasing after the eyes of the crowd?

Let's not focus so much on getting people to look. Let's focus more on creating something beautiful for people to see, in case they do look...  Just like flowers on a mountainside are still beautiful if no one sees, your work is still valuable even if no one lines up to see it.So write, sing, act, and speak and love all of it... and know that it's all meaningful."

- Jane Marczewski ("Nightbirde"), an excerpt from her upcoming blog.

Greens are great, but...


Greens are great, but people who regularly ate from the full color spectrum - strawberries, blueberries, oranges, peppers, apples - had a 20% lower risk of cognitive decline compared with those who ate fewer.

The Three Stooges...

 The Three Stooges:

Moe once confirmed that when Curly forgot his lines, that merely allowed him to improvise on the spot so that the "take" could continue uninterrupted:
“ If we were going through a scene and he'd forget his words for a moment, you know, rather than stand, get pale and stop, you never knew what he was going to do. On one occasion he'd get down to the floor and spin around like a top until he remembered what he had to say. ”

- Larry Fine (born Louis Feinberg - October 5, 1902 – January 24, 1975).
- Moe Howard (born Moses Harry Horwitz - June 19, 1897 – May 4, 1975).
- Curly Howard (born Jerome Lester Horwitz (October 22, 1903 – January 18, 1952).
