Mark Twain

"I do not fear death. I had been dead for billions and billions of years before I was born, and had not suffered the slightest inconvenience from it"

Richard Dawkins

Tonight I had the privilege of seeing Richard Dawkins here at UT Austin.  He gave the most amazing lecture and spoke about his new book, The God Delusion.  I can't wait to start reading it.  His presentation was so informative and moving.  I walked away learning a few things I didn't already know about atheism.  

"I am against religion because it teaches us to be satisfied with not understanding the world"   - Richard Dawkins

Doll House Shoot

I am so pleased that my doll house shoot finally panned out. :) Here is one image so far. More to come later in the week.

What a busy week for me so far--and it's only Monday! Whew! I have about four different papers to write that are all due either this week or next. I'm not sure how I'm going to juggle those with other assignments I have, not to mention a couple of shoots scheduled. I wish there was more time in the day to get things done. I can't wait for Spring Break to get here so I can finally relax.

In other news, I'm very excited to be getting a new laptop; a MacBook Pro! :-) I'm going to pick it up tomorrow night in Austin. This little bad girl is coming with the new Penryn processor chip which was just launched from Apple at the end of February. Guaranteed to eat your lunch, it's super fast!!!

Here is an excerpt I found interesting in my British Lit class. We are reading "The Tempest" right now.

Full fathom five thy father lies.
Of his bones are coral made.
Those are pearls that were his eyes.
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea change
Into something rich and strange.
Sea nymphs hourly ring his knell.
[Burden (within)]. Ding dong.
Hark, now I hear them, ding dong bell.
-Ariel, Shakespeare's "The Tempest"

Thought for today

"Be who you are and say what you feel 'cause people who mind don't matter, and people who matter don't mind." -Theodor Seuss Geisel (aka "Dr. Seuss")
