"Mozart starved, but you allow Thalberg and Liszt to make tons of gold: of course, you may think that someone immortal cannot die of hunger."

-Franz Grillparzer (1791?1872) Austrian author
Xenias Poems (1840)


OK...I just finished my commute from Iowa City to Cedar Rapids and then read this. I was lamenting, as I walked from my car to the office, about the time I spend on the road every day.

Then I saw this photo. And I remembered that, at the very least, my car moves at highway speeds all the way from my house to my office and back. I might be commuting, but I'm not sitting in traffic.

Ugh. That traffic is SO not worth it.
