“Poetry gives us knowledge. It is a knowledge of ourselves in relation to the world of experience, and to that world considered, not statistically, but in terms of human purposes and values. Experience considered in terms of human purpose and values is dramatic – dramatic in that it is concrete, in that it involves a process, and in that it embodies the human effort to arrive – through conflict – at meaning.”

    I have a bottle of Cazadores Anejo. Un-opened, and not likely to be opened.

    As you know I think that Lego Land is as close to heaven as you can get on earth. So do the kids. Lego Land is in Carlsbad. I have time off in October to regenerate a new anus. Anejo would have a place of privilege in my van. All I need is a place to drink the Anejo. Any ideas?

    Way to go on not buying the cheap stuff in the bourbon department.
