Thoughts for Life. . .

.“I wanted a perfect ending. Now I’ve learned, the hard way, that some poems don’t rhyme, and some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle, and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.” - Gilda Radner
Today the SOUTHERN KITCHEN will be on the auction block. A little restaurant my friends and I used for after dance/ theater performances, and for late night weekend board games and homemade pie.
Note: Ms. Delsie didn't collect BLENKO.

Stopped there the one time I was in Charleston. Chickens right?
Photos of important people and elderly lady with good jewelry - is this Ms. Delsey?
Found the place in a directory of Southern Roadhouses.

That's really good thinking and that's where spirituality comes into picture and oh gosh!! isn't it hard following it(for a normal MIND)....WE always are so caught up in planning and plan for that uncertainity which is uncertain ANYWAY :-)

The depth of your spirit and interest is unusual for someone under 30.
Are these quotes in a book? If so I'd like to purchase the book.
Thank you

They are not from a book
I loved Gilda - and contributed a few dollars to her foundation - this was on one of the cards - I 'stole' it
her life was much too short.
