You will now be forever linked in my imagination, with those cute lil guys! :mrgreen:

Just follow the link to my first thread viewtopic.php?f=15&t=33040#p380580, open the page with the interview and go about the second half of it (You have been around Australia more times than I think half the people that live here have, but do you have a stand out memory of a visit that you can share with us?) ...
I think you will understand and maybe also know why I chose the name of Quokka :roll:

LOL!!! OMG :lol: That about killed me!
Now, somehow I had missed that whole thing, so thank you for the link, LOL. *I love reading interviews with Steve, in general...* mostly because, somewhere in there, you know there's gonna be a cute, funny or awesome little unexpected story... like the Wake-up Call Quokka! LOL!

Love is space and time measured by the heart.
Marcel Proust


And I have another one which made me think about Steve and his fascination for those little black dots :

La musique est peut-être l’exemple unique de ce qu’aurait pu être - s’il n’y avait pas eu l’invention du langage, la formation des mots, l’analyse des idées - la communication des âmes.
Marcel Proust

which I would translate into :
Music might be the sole example - save for the invention of language, the word forming, the ideas' analysis - of what soul communication could have been.

^^^Very nice! I like those. Stuff like this... it's like nourishment for the Soul. And it makes the Heart smile.
Thanks so much for those two, I hadn't seen those in my wanderings 8)

Quokka and Jenn, this is a very lovely quote, and is beautiful for the imagination to contemplate!!!!! :D :peace :guitar I'm going to have to reread some Marcel Proust. 8) The last time I read anything by him, I was studying in college. :wink: Anyway, thanks for contributing this one!!!! :peace
