Anyone interested in doing a little quick-and-dirty editing for me? Not so much grammar and spelling as style and word usage. Drop me a line if you’re interested.

“Drop me a line.” Gosh, I’ve always wanted to say that.

I ran into this quote when I was looking up something for one of my classes. I’ve heard/read echoes of it here and there, but I never knew who the author was till now.



No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend’s or of thine own were. Any man’s death diminishes me because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

John Donne, from “Meditation XVII”

And, a little Jamiroquai. Because I can.


Virtual Insanity

Jamiroquai

Oh yeah, what we’re living in…

It’s a wonder man can eat at all

When things are big that should be small

Who can tell what magic spells we’ll be doing for us

And I’m giving all my love to this world

Only to be told

I can’t see

I can’t breathe

No more will we be

And nothing’s going to change the way we live

Cuz we can always take but never give

And now that things are changing for the worse

See, its a crazy world we’re living in

And I just can’t see that half of us immersed in sin

Is all we have to give these –

Futures made of virtual insanity – now

Always seem to, be govern’d by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound – for we all live underground

And I’m thinking what a mess we’re in

Hard to know where to begin

If I could slip the sickly ties that earthly man has made

And now every mother, can choose the colour

Of her child

That’s not nature’s way

Well that’s what they said yesterday

There’s nothing left to do but pray

I think it’s time I found a new religion

Waoh – it’s so insane

To synthesize another strain

There’s something in these

Futures that we have to be told

Futures made of virtual insanity – now

Always seem to, be govern’d by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound – for we all live underground

Now there is no sound

If we all live underground

And now it’s virtual insanity

Forget your virtual reality

Oh, there’s nothing so bad

I know

Of this virtual insanity, we’re livin in.

Has got to change, yeah

Things, will never be the same.

And I can’t go on

While we’re livin’ in oh, oh virtual insanity

Oh, this world, has got to change

Cuz I just, I just can’t keep going on, it was virtual

Virtual insanity that we’re livin’ in, that we’re livin’ in

That virtual insanity is what it is

Futures made of virtual insanity – now

Always seem to, be govern’d by this love we have

For useless, twisting, our new technology

Oh, now there is no sound – for we all live underground

Living – Virtual Insanity

Virtual Insanity is what we’re living in

Hope everyone has a good Monday.
