Well, I was doing it last night, were you?
Watching Martin Scorsese's PBS Special The Blues:A Musical Journey There is a different director each night culminating with Clint Eastwood. Check here for your local channel's schedule. Two quotes, in particular, stood out to me during this special:
1) When the whole world is bored with automated mass-distributed video-music, our descendants
will despise us for having thrown away the best of our culture.
2)Robert Johnson ..a high haunting voice with a perfect balance on the razor's edge of joy and blues.
So I researched it a little more and came across this fascinating article about the author of the first quote.
NASA, Guggenheim, Ku Klux Klan, O Brother Where Art Thou....lots of interesting tidbits. Take some time and read it and watch the special.
"If you can't get rid of the skeleton in your closet, you'd best teach it to dance."

"Go often to the house of thy friend; for weeds soon choke up the unused path."
And the day came when the risk it
took to remain tight in a bud was
more painful then the risk
it took to blossom.
Get this if you get anything,
YOU ARE NOT WHAT YOU DO.
If you are what you do, when you donít,
you arenít. Your value comes from your
self and your very existence.
The best place to find helping
hands is at the end
of your own arms.
