Here on “Cache Talks..” here’s one of my favorite quotes by Melvin Tolson

                                              “And bone
                                             Turn dust
                                               And stone,
                                               With life
                                               So brief,
                                               Why add
                                               To grief?” – Melvin Tolson., A Song for Myself.
