Kurt Vonnegut 1922 - 2007

"I want to stand as close to the edge as I can without going over. Out on the edge you see all the kinds of things you can't see from the centre."
Kurt Vonnegut

I find all my favorite blogs have noted the passing of this transcendent cultural heretic.

By the way, I have tagged you with the Thinking Blogger Award, the rules for which you may find on my latest post.

I am sad to see his passing, but he did leave the world some great works.

OK, that's it. I've never read any of his stuff, my excuse being he wasn't all that well known in England. Now I have to but perhaps I'll wait until the hype dies down a while..
All my favourite bloggers are on the edge looking over, and all my favourite bloggers have paid him tribute.

That's a fantastic quote you chose.

I'm experiencing a case of extreme 'blogger envy' .... a perfect quote matched to an even better photo!

Oh well, I was busy obsessing about death in general when I noted, belatedly, his passing....

That's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.
