"THERE IS A LIGHT THAT NEVER GOES OUT"

"We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down."

Kurt Vonnegut
1922-2007

May his memory be for a blessing, indeed.

All day long, I've overheard people saying, "So it goes." Everywhere I go, they're repeating that same Vonnegut line like a mantra. "So it goes, so it goes, so it goes." I guess it makes Vonnegut's passing seem a little less sad and a little more poetic.

Personally, I prefer another Vonnegut quote, which isn't quite as romantic to say with a forlorn shrug, and it's also a little depressing if you think about it too much. But for some reason, I've found a weird sort of comfort in it.

"All persons, living and dead, are purely coincidental."

So it goes.
