Some of Bev's Favorite Quotes...

Attention All Challengers! here on the Block has been, shall we say, challenging since I got back from vacation. I cam back to work to no computer (not hooked up after our office move) and my laptop at home has gone on strike. It looks like the Check-in Posts for the Just the Facts & Mount TBR challenges will wind up happening at the end of July instead of the regularly scheduled mid-point. But they are coming. Stay tuned!

I've been away from Freda's meme for quite a long time.  But on this Saturday after the tragic events in Newtown, Connecticut I offer up this poem by the very talented poet Yusef Komanyakka--a professor of English at New York University.

"Rock Me, Mercy"
