This post is all Eddie’s fault.

Things that are exquisitely fortuitous

  • her sudden and unexpected departure with a drunken Hanes waving a gun
  • timing
  • positioning
  • several kinds of parameters of the universe
  • that they chose sh** to describe this newest of Beetoven’s competitors

Exceedingly beautiful, yet …

  • frightfully poor
  • profoundly sad
  • whose beauty was her least charm
  • cruel at the same time
  • it seems not to rest upon solid masonry
  • Mary Howitt was–and you could not help but feel it–queen among them all
  • the sculptor proceeded with little pleasure
  • the soil is much thinner than that of the flat bottom land near the Mississippi
  • not one of the sailors responded to the offer
  • perfectly practical and becoming
  • in tropical scenery, the entire newness, & therefore absence of all associations, which in my own case (& I believe in others) are unconsciously much more frequent than I ever thought, requires the mind to be wrought to a high pitch, & then assuredly no delight can be greater; otherwise your reason tells you it is beautiful but the feelings do not correspond
  • in our opinion neither of them equals our old superb warbler or Blue Wren
  • she rubbed her face with pepper so as not to tempt anyone or take any focus from God

  • sad when an old campaigner reaches the twilight years
  • it never mattered

Things that are too frightening to seriously consider
