Damn

One of my favorite all-time authors - John Updike - died today of cancer at age 76. :(

Ach. He was indeed a good writer. May he continue to delight others in the Hereafter.

He was also a decent guy. Kinda hard to find in good writers. One of my other faves - Norman Mailer - once wrote a critique against John Updike's work. lol

I'm sure he's in a better place than this.

Words.

Here is Belladonna, the Lady of the Rocks,
The lady of situations.
Here is the man with three staves, and here the Wheel,
And here is the one-eyed merchant, and this card
Which is blank, is something that he carries on his back,
Which I am forbidden to see. I do not find
The Hanged Man. Fear death by water.
I see crowds of people, walking round in a ring.
Thank you. If you see dear Mrs. Equitone,
Tell her I bring the horoscope myself;

One must be so careful these days.
