Fourteen Years Ago Today...

February 26th, 2008 (09:47 am)

I walked into Lovejoys for the very first time,
ordered a Guinness from Chip Tait.

And the World Lost Bill Hicks.

I actually didn't recall the name "Bill Hicks" so I went looking.

Some interesting stuff; sad that he's not around anymore-- we could use voices like his.

One quote I particularly liked:

It's just a ride and we can change it any time we want. It's only a choice. No effort, no work, no job, no savings and money, a choice, right now, between fear and love. The eyes of fear want you to put bigger locks on your door, buy guns, close yourself off. The eyes of love instead see all of us as one. --Bill Hicks

I have much love for Bill.
It's a cosmic injustice that he wasn't around to help me laugh at the state of things lately.
