Fellow Monroe-naut A. has begun reading The Risen, and has noticed the different writing styles and notes her varied emotional and mental responses to them.

Although this aspect of the book has been mentioned in the past, but not for some time, it might be useful for readers, new and old, to keep it in mind when reading the different chapters. There were many hundreds of primary contributors to The Risen, along with as-yet uncounted thousands of secondary and background assistants and supporters. Tim, I feel, did an excellent job of editing.

Thanks to G. who “stumbled” on this blog and emailed about his heavenly delight in finding Jackson Pollock sharing elbow room with Harold & Maude.

“How do you know when you're finished making love? [responding to the question asked of Pollock: How do you know when you're finished?]”

"A lot of people enjoy being dead. But they are not dead, really. They're just backing away from life. Reach out. Take a chance. Get hurt even. But play as well as you can. Go team, go! Give me an L. Give me an I. Give me a V. Give me an E. L-I-V-E. LIVE! "
