All work and no play makes Batgirl a dull superhero

"A little nonsense now and then,
is cherished by the wisest men."

-- Roald Dahl, Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator

Self portrait 12-1-13

"You can discover more about a person in an hour of play
than in a year of conversation."

-- Plato

"Go and play.
Run around.
Build something.
Break something.
Climb a tree.
Get dirty.
Get in some trouble.
Have some fun."

-- Brom, The Child Thief

"It is human life.
We are blown upon the world;
we float buoyantly upon the summer air a little while,
complacently showing off our grace of form and our dainty iridescent colors;
then we vanish with a little puff,
leaving nothing behind but a memory --
and sometimes not even that."

-- Mark Twain, "Mark Twain's Own Autobiography," 
North American Review, May 3, 1907
