I remember my youth and the feeling that will never come back any more /the feeling that I could last for ever, outlast the sea, the earth, and all men; the deceitful feeling that lures us on to joys, to perils, to love, to vain effort /to death; the triumphant conviction of strength, the heat of life in the handful of dust, the glow in the heart that with every year grows dim, grows cold, grows small, and expires /and expires, too soon, too soon /before life itself.
~ Joseph Conrad (December 03, 1857 - August 03, 1924)

We offered a range of services. Some people needed food, and many disabled residents and seniors were asking for assistance. We set up telephones for public use, set up computers so residents could send e-mails, provided information on available housing, and helped file applications to FEMA for assistance.
We are born at the rise of the curtain and we die with its fall, and every night in the presence of our patrons we write our new creation, and every night it is blotted out forever; and of what use is it to say to audience or to critic, "Ah, but you should have seen me last Tuesday?"
~ Jules Renard (February 22, 1864 - May 22, 1910)
