Art is the means we have for undoing the damage of haste. It’s what everything else isn’t. ~ Theodore Roethke

Today’s lead quote was learned yesterday during the last class of the Senior College Fall Season. The class, “Why We Need Poetry,” was taught by Joyce Sutphen from Gustavus Adolphus and is Minnesota’s Poet Laureate. And to think prior to class I was going to lead with: “Last night at Carnegie Hall, Jack Benny played Mendelssohn. Mendelssohn lost.” ~ Harold C. Schonberg
