    That's what I needed to hear
    Everyone is always telling me: You'll be fine, you always do great-lalalala. But I need insurance- knowing that you've seen others like me (sort of) do fine after this, makes me believe, maybe it will all be okay. Thank you Virgil

    Why do you think that? Im not so sure I've got what it takes.
    industrial research is more practical than scientific research which is more theoretical. If only there was a solid method for relating the two together rather than actually separating them from each other. what is your job Virgil? If you dont mind me asking

    Ah, Blake is such a genius...
    Your post really made me smile

    Someday I'll have to transcribe all of Jansch's lyrics... I listened to the Read all about it song again; it said the album only barely made it through. . . they said something about "uncooperative engineers," I wonder what that would have been like.

    You're welcome Blake is definitely my favorite; I think I'd just say Blake and Goethe are tied for it
    So it wouldn't let me post it earlier, but this came to mind right after I read your post

    "The Fly," by William Blake

    Little fly,
    Thy summer’s play
    My thoughtless hand
    Has brushed away.

    Am not I
    A fly like thee?
    Or art not thou
    A man like me?

    For I dance
    And drink and sing,
    Till some blind hand
    Shall brush my wing.

    If thought is life
    And strength and breath,
    And the want
    Of thought is death,

    Then am I
    A happy fly,
    If I live,
    Or if I die.


    - oh yeah, besides being such brilliant poets, Blake and Goethe also have art ability in common..

    I also like some of Blake's letters and such; one was especially hiarious to me..

    Thank you NikolaiI
    I really like this poem, I haven't read anything from Goethe or Shelley yet though... *writing them down on my reading list*

    Your tastes are impeccable
    Blake is quite dear, and right up there with Goethe and Shelley in measure of brilliant poets
