Fred Astaire, dancing on the ceiling
"Tennessee Williams once wrote, We all live in a house on fire, no fire department to call; no way out, just the upstairs window to look out of while the fire burns the house down with us trapped, locked in it.
What Tennesse failed to mention was that if we look out of that window with an itchy curiosity and a passionate eye; with a generous spirit and capacity for delight; and yes, the language with which to support and enrich the things we see, then it doesn't matter that the house is burning down around us. It doesn't matter."
Tom Robbins
