As hard as it is to believe, there are actual, real-life superheroes. Individuals whose talent surpasses anything most of us could ever dream of. These are humans with extraordinary, other-worldly abilities, who can do things, achieve feats that over time raise them to the level of myth or legend. Glenn Gould was one such individual.
GENEVA, Sept. 25—Erich Maria Remarque, the German-born author who attained world fame with his World War I novel “All Quiet on the Western Front,” died at noon today of a heart collapse at the Saint Agnese clinic at Locarno, Switzerland. He was 72 years old.
Colors bear their own code of associations, conjuring certain perceptions in our mind and triggering a physiological reaction. One can argue that the way we wear certain colors is similar to the way writers use poetic devices – to represent emotions, sensations, and ideas that are otherwise hidden in our subconscious mind.

Bernard stood in the middle of his flat letting the impressions of the play dance just behind the surface of his eyes in that space somewhere between visualization and thought.
I don’t know what I should talk about—about death or about love? Or are they the same? Which one should I talk about? We were newlyweds.

Hypnotic Donuts is perhaps the kind of establishment one typically associates with the free-wheeling, hippy spirit of Portland, but we are glad to call the establishment o ur own here in Casa Linda. And there can be no doubt – here one can sample, marvel at, and relish some of the finest donuts and chicken biscuits anywhere in Dallas.
