The pursuit of truth and beauty is a sphere of activity in which we are permitted to remain children all our lives.
- Albert Einstein

Click here for a large list of my favorite songs.

A quote from a Jackson Browne song sums it up. The Song is "Looking Into You."

"The great song traveler passed me here,
And he opened my eyes to the view.
And I was among those who called him a prophet
And I asked him what was true.
Until the distance had shown how the road remains alone.
Now I'm looking in my life for a truth that is my own.

Well I looked into the sky for my anthem,
And the words and the music came through.
But words and music can never touch the beauty that I have seen,
Looking into you -- and that's true "
