"Growing up Southern is a privilege, really. It's more than where you're born; it's an idea and state of mind that seems imparted at birth. It's more than loving fried chicken, sweet tea, football, and country music. It’s being hospitable, devoted to front porches, magnolias, moon pies, coca-cola... and each other. We don't become Southern - we're born that way." - Unknown

We studied John Cage in one of my music classes.
Today is the anniversary of his death.
I think he was brilliant.

Seriously. I believe I could have written that piece. I must be brilliant then. I love when the conductor wiped his brow. It must be truly strenuous to just stand there.
