Sunshine Window

The cold winter wind has made a few more attempts to cool things back down, but the sunshine window says there's a change coming.

“It was a fabulous sundress though. With it's soft yellow fabric and lime green threading. What wasn't there to like? Especially considering it had pockets. I mean really, dear reader, who doesn't like a dress with pockets? Imagine all the twine you could put in there. Or lint, or pennies, or even a helpless puppy lost and alone. That would make an especially good use of a sundress pocket.”
Gwen Sund, Sprinklers in the Rain: An Exercise in Futility

“... once upon a time I dreamt of being a real artist. I felt sure that once I started showing in galleries I would be fabulous and happy. What really ended up happening was that people with far too much money would buy up all my work and store it in some warehouse forever. If I was really lucky they would hang it in their 23rd bedroom of their mid spring house.”
Gwen Sund, Writing on the Wall: Lola's Story

“Something will happen eventually... or it won't. One of the two.”
Gwen Sund, Interpretive Dance at 65 MPH

“And so it goes...”
Kurt Vonnegut, Slaughterhouse-Five

“As long as she thinks of a man, nobody objects to a woman thinking.”
Virginia Woolf, Orlando

“I can never read all the books I want; I can never be all the people I want and live all the lives I want. I can never train myself in all the skills I want. And why do I want? I want to live and feel all the shades, tones and variations of mental and physical experience possible in my life. And I am horribly limited.”
Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath

“The hottest places in hell are reserved for those who, in times of great moral crisis, maintain their neutrality.”
Dante Alighieri

“One man's ways may be as good as another's, but we all like our own best.”
Jane Austen, Persuasion
