...get that out of the way

I'll be away for a little while, somewhere in east Europe, on a sort of small 'roots trip' . It will start with locating the graves of my grandparents, cleaning their tombstones, litting candles, saying prayers...I'll sure miss your fabulous blogs from which I learn so much. In the meantime, I leave you to read and enjoy Woody Allen's brilliant tiny piece of writing (enlarge the picture).

Have a great time and a safe one. Look forward to reading of your travels.

Woody Allen: what a fab writer. I love his films and his little bon mots. Thanks for putting the backwards life piece up.

Didn't he say "I'm not scared of dying; I just don't wanna be there when it happens." in answer to a question about death.

Thanks Michelle. I'm glad to see a word from you as you've completely dissappeared for a while from the blogosphera. I hope you're here to stay.

DUTA said...

I love that you went on a "roots trip." I think we are somewhat on the same wavelength. I've felt the need for a while now to go back to visit my roots. Actually, I think about it on a daily basis. I, too, want to visit graves. I hope you found what you were looking for.
