Waiting for Sam

People are bloody ignorant apes.
Pah.

Charming spot. - Inspiring prospects. - Let's go.

We can't.

Why not?

We're waiting for Sam.

Ah. You're sure it was here?



What?

That we were to wait.

He said by the grave. Do you see any others?

He must be dead.

No more weeping.

We are always finding something, eh, Sean, to give us the impression we exist?

Yes, yes, we're magicians.

Happy birthday then, Sam! :)

  3. Sean, you are extremely knowledgeable and I marvel at your ability to enlighten your readers of information that most of us have forgotten or unaware.

    Sam was a lateral thinker and extremely knowledgeable.

    The photo of the tombstone has put me into a morbid wonder … where does all the knowledge and experience that one acquires in life go to when we are 6 foot under?
    :(

  4. jmb,
    your gesture will fill our birthday boy's heart with joy. :)

    James,
    a 'thank you would be too easy'. Let me rather say: We (bloggers) are - in a way - complementing one another. :)

    Jams,
    I am glad your forgot about. Otherwise I'd not deserved James' compliment. :)))

    Ardent,
    isn't it lovely we all can 'enlighten' one another? :)

    Yes, Samuel Beckett was special - not 'only' as an author. And you are right: Where does 'all the knowledge and experience' once go?

    In his case: We have - at least - his writings.
