*Thoughts to Ponder: (October 2001)From Thomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd :
"His title comes from Thomas Gray's 'Elegy Written in a Country Churchyard' (1751) which reflects that the peaceful lives of humble villagers far from the public arena contrast with, yet might well have been like, those of the famous in different circumstances: ' some mute inglorious Milton', 'some Cromwell guiltless of his country's blood'. But there is less peace in Hardy's world.."

I need it" . ..From the movie- ONCE... How often do you find the right person? ONCE. I am just wishing for the right one to come!
Oct.2008 at Taipei- I remembered I was in the lobby, sitting at the large square cushion seat and unintentionally listening to music of this hotel, "quirky" as what I read about it (among the latest hotels in Taipei) in an in- flight magazine, I was urged to write ... it searches the innermost of my soul to start thinking and being transported... to Paris...just like the basement delicious breakfast they have.. . it's a hodge -podge of uniqueness and Paris is one dash of it... The uniqueness of lifestyle in Taipei is something that one would love to search and savor...it's just comfortably different...
