 A great poet has left us.
Seamus Heaney, Nobel laureate, "keeper of language," gone too soon.

 "When I landed in the republic of conscience
it was so noiseless when the engines stopped
I could hear a curlew high above the runway. …
No porters. No interpreter. No taxi.
You carried your own burden and very soon
your symptoms of creeping privilege disappeared." 
 -- Seamus Heaney

Simplicity is the removal of the useless and the unnecessary--source unknown


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate each and every one of you.
