{madness by by popohuata}

Much madness is divinest sense
To a discerning eye;
Much sense the starkest madness.
’T is the majority
In this, as all, prevails.        
Assent, and you are sane;
Demur,—you ’re straightway dangerous,
And handled with a chain.

~~ Emily Dickinson (1830–86)


 Addie was along in years even back then,
and that was decades ago.

she advised:

1) don't steal
2) be reliable
3) it doesn't matter
 what you did yesterday;
 what you do today matters.



we remember Addie,
 she may be long-dead.

Thanks for visiting my blog! You sure have an eclectic collection of blogs yourself. :)

Do come back and let me know what you thought of the film. I took my family to see it this afternoon and they loved it, even my Holmes purist husband.
