On CBS Radio the news of [Ed Murrow’s] death, reportedly from lung cancer, was followed by a cigarette commercial.
Though outwardly a gloomy shroud,
The inner half of every cloud
Is bright and shining:
I therefore turn my clouds about
And always wear them inside out
To show the lining.
~Ellen Thorneycroft Fowler
Its 3:00 a.m.
The stars are twinkling
The half-moon is shining brightly
The sound of the numerous semis humming tires, traveling
on the nearby interstate
The freight train on its way to Portland, Maine or
to Lawrence, Mass
The barking of a stray dog
The meowing of an alley cat
Just some of the things that go unnoticed, and not heard by most of us, as the human populace, are in a deep and restful sleep
“ashes or diamonds foe or friend we’re all equal in the end”
– Roger Waters
