1. As much as we may hope otherwise, there is no statute of limitations on tragedy.

We all face each day with the tender vulnerability of the one before. Move softly, friends.

2. We are animals. Intelligent ones, but still susceptible to the same primitive drives and behavior as our furrier friends. Hoooooooowl indeed.

3. There is nothing like the magic of anticipation.
