For Our Dear Tita Lani.....

On this day, here's one of my favorite quotes from......strangely enough.......the movie Stranger Than Fiction:

"Sometimes when we lose ourselves in fear and despair, in routine and constancy, in hopelessness and tragedy, we can thank God for Bavarian sugar cookies. And fortunately enough, when there aren't sugar cookies, we can still find reassurance in a familiar hand on our skin or a kind and loving gesture, or a subtle encouragement, or a loving embrace, or an offer of comfort not to mention hospital gurneys and nose plugs and uneaten danish and soft spoken secrets and fender guitars and to maybe the occassional piece of fiction. And we must remember that all these things, the nuances, the annomalies, the subtleties which we assume only accessorize our days, are in fact here for a much larger and nobler cause. They are here to save our lives. I know the idea seems strange but I also know that it just so happens to be true." ----- Karen Eiffel (played by Emma Thompson)
