Troubles in Paradise
"People need trouble -- a little frustration to sharpen the spirit on, toughen it. Artists do; I don't mean you need to live in a rat hole or gutter, but you have to learn fortitude, endurance. Only vegetables are happy."
-- William Faulkner
"I have troubles; I am not a vegetable; I am happy. I disagree."
-- Barrier Island Girl
Thank God and Hewlitt-Packard and UPS -- I am back in business tonight! Hopefully I will not have to talk with Mohamed or Arvind or anyone in India for a decade or more!
