"When Alexander the Great visited Diogenes and asked whether he could do anything for the famed teacher, Diogenes replied: 'Only stand out of my light.' Perhaps some day we shall know how to heighten creativity. Until then, one of the best things we can do for creative men and women is to stand out of their light. "
John W. Gardner (1912 -2002)

Well all I can say is, Amen to that!

Great quote, Lisa! I don't pretend to be any creative wonder, but if they're going to stand out of my light, it'd be great if they didn't try and change the wattage of the bulb either. Just a thought for the fireflies.
