I don't know if our life has a purpose and I don't see that it matters. What does matter is that we're a part. Like a thread in a cloth or a grass-blade in a field. It is and we are. What we do is like wind blowing on the grass. (Ursula Le Guin, The Lathe of Heaven)
Beet: nice
Cat: I have at least a dozen of her books but my copy of the Larthe of Heaven seems to have vanished.
