Your writing about words and what lasts reminds me of a poem one of my grad students just shared with me:

From 1700 years ago (their future is our past)...

"Every time I consider the reasons for why the people of old had regrets, I am always moved to sadness by their writings, ... For the people who read this in future generations, perhaps you will likewise be moved by my words."

Great post - and terrific picture. I don't know whose expression is better, yours or the llama's!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
