"Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly;
Man got to sit and wonder 'why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land;
Man got to tell himself he understand."

Of course, be as sad as you will be about Vonnegut passing on.
I sniffled a bit myself!

But we've lost nothing.

At least he'd think so - in a bit self-effacing way, sure - but his words' impact will last a long, long time. He's still laughing and sneering as much as ever.
Aggie pointed out that he'd consider it as being "unstuck in Time." d0m reminded that when in such a state, he lives forever in the past, and the view of Time is best seen as we can look upon the Rocky Mountains, not a linear string of beads. He's hit the eternity frequency, and if anything, he's more a part of us now and forever forward than when he was stuck in his frumpled stack of meat.

Or I may be wrong.
"Still and all, why bother? Here's my answer.
Many people need desperately to receive this message:
I feel and think much as you do, care about many of the things you care about,
although most people do not care about them.
You are not alone."

So long, Kurt. See you outside!
You're one of the ones who taught me the most, really.

And if I should ever die, God forbid, I hope you will say, "Kurt is up in heaven now." That's my favorite joke.

So may quotes and lines and thoughts that'd go so well, but not my place to ramble. He really built worlds of thought, beauty and the ridiculous.

Thanks for everything.
Enjoy the Turkey Farm!

heh, I just heard a whisper:
"And then a thousand damned fools will blog about this damned fool's life closing out.
And so it goes. I'm lucky mud. Hey ho. "
