Even though it's uncomfortable at times, "a mind once stretched never gains it's original dimensions." We must always strive toward growth or we risk stagnation.

(sorry, I can't remember who said the quote I referred to;-)

Zappa did have something to say sometimes!

Love the photo with it too.

Have a good weekend!

Ahhh...love this! Reminds me of the fish story in Bach's Illusions; The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah - the one fish that swam in the fast stream while the rest clung to the rocks afraid...

Nothing more truer,
wonderful post GZ :)

and i forgot to say...your photos for the quotes are so very stricking...do you intentionally keep them small...if it were a bit more larger, the appeal would be more, i think...just a thought, GZ :)
