~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
Some things are so emotionally overwhelming we have to tell somebody. One evening the father of poet Emily Dickinson hurried to the church in Amherst, MA, and pulled the bell rope. The villagers rushed from their homes. What was the alarm? Fire? Accident?
It was neither. Mr. Dickinson, overcome by beauty, was summoning everyone to admire a sunset too magnificent to keep to himself.

But Can He Walk and Chew Gum at the Same Time?
BASIRHAT, West Bengal - And I thought that people who are ambidextrous were talented. Indian performer Tapan Dey, 25, can reportedly write with all four limbs in different languages at the same time. Dey writes in Hindi, Assamese, English and Bangla, in front of street audiences and claims he wants to "redefine" the art of calligraphy. "I was inspired when I saw a young boy in Calcutta writing with both hands. I thought I could do better," Dey told reporters. He admitted that there really isn't a future for his "talent" as a profession, and would like to become a teacher.
