Everything is More Beautiful Because We're Doomed

Any moment might be our last. Everything is more beautiful
because we're doomed. You will never be lovelier
than you are now. We will never be here again.

--Homer, The Iliad


  1. Lynn, I remember well the evening in 1981 we spent at the Elliott Bay Book Company, then sharing our new treasures over dinner. I never imagined back then that you were looking at your books as raw material for something more sublime! Kelly


  2. Ah, Kelly, is that you?! Long time, no see. You didn't realize you were dining with a book murderer. As you see, I've found a different kind of mischief in the second half of my life. Hope all is well and life has been kind to you (give or take a pandemic or two...). You owe me a drink.

  3. Very long time, no see! We need to talk about who owes whom a drink. If you want a sketch of the years 1982 - the present, LinkedIn will give you my professional side - attorney & author. If you want a bit about the personal side, drop me a line at kellykirkland70 at and I will respond. But if all this is too far in the past, no worries. KJK
