Always reminds me of a Paul Simon lyric."When he says Dylan, he means Dylan Thomas, whoever he was. The man ain't got no culture."

I do admire Dylan Thomas's poetry and gift, but oh! his lines about not going 'gentle' into that good night, but rage against it....is just so diametrically opposed to what I believe that it takes my breath away when I am reminded of it. Don't mean to preach, but, Christ has conquered death and the beautiful future in the new heavens and new earth is so real to me that when it is time for me to go, I will be eagerly accepting what awaits me. Meanwhile, I will try to do what I can to bring about heaven on earth to those around me.

Amen, Chris!
I also like Dylan Thomas, but. it doesn't mean I agree always with him.
Anyway, have a great week!
Wil, ABCW Team.
