---Frederic Lawrence Knowles quote.

I'm a believer. I don't go to church. I don't belong to any particular religion,
but I do believe in God. I couldn't write what I write about and be creative
without a certain form of belief. ---Nick Cave
---Nick Cave quote.

Oprah is a wealthy person, pack leader of the human world. So many see her as the dominant one,
as the authority figure. The way I view her energy, seeing her on TV, is a very calm, quiet energy.
You need, in order to gain control, higher energy than your dog. ---Cesar Millan

Thinking about Brooklyn Ballet's performance @ St. Francis College. The audience was so respectful.
No cell phone issues. No flash photography. Warm applause when appropriate, attentive silence
otherwise. A friendly low-key reception afterwards. A pleasure to be there.
