We're a little sad these days. Thinking about leaving so much behind. Trying to find homes for our pets and knowing that we'll be leaving behind friends and family has got us in the dumps. Lucky for us there's Cat Stevens music and Harold and Maude. If you don't know the movie, here's a taste:

Harold and Maude
In one particularly poignant moment in the film, Maude asks young Harold what kind of flower best describes him. He absently points at a hedge of little white flowers and says "one of those, I guess." Maude asks him why, and Harold says it is because they are all the same. "Oh," Maude says, "but they're not. Some are big. Some small. Some grow to the right. Others to the left. All kinds of observable differences. You know Harold, much of life's problems derive from people who are this (holding up a unique little white flower), but allow themselves to be treated like that."
Now I think its time for some CSPAN.
