unheard music

my friend, she got me this book and it's made me laugh and it's made me think and it's made me cry.

it's simple and sweet and funny and serious. it's called "Mostly True Collected Stories and Drawings" by Brian Andreas and he's got a great website that might make you laugh and think and cry... or just learn how to think a little more simply or a little more deeply or maybe just make you feel a little more like a part of the human race.

here's a lovely one :

Don't you hear it ? she
asked & I shook my head
no & then she started to
dance & suddenly there
was music everywhere &
it went on for a very long
time & when I finally
found words all I could
say was thank you .

I LOVE this guy! I have one of his "story people" at home; they are my favorite!

This is the one I have at home: "travelling as fast in one direction as she can go before she has second thoughts & goes back to doing the same old stuff"
