Odin sacrificed an eye, trading eyesight for insight, and disguised as Vegtam the Wanderer, traveled the world in quest of the wisdom of the ages. I have the eye sacrifice part covered. I'll get back to you when that wisdom thing kicks in.

Warren Zevon

I assume most of you know the Warren died about five years ago. Ironically there doesn't seem to be a good tube of one of my favorite songs, Carmelita, The last two cuts are from his last album, which dealt with his dying. People seem to die when they chose to. Warren stayed alive long enough to hold his new twin grandchildren, then he let it go. Zevon rarely sang other people's songs, but the last is a cover. Maybe he just didn't have the energy left. He left us some wonderful songs and a few great quotes.
