POKER IN A PITCH DARK ROOM 



"Our problems are man-made, therefore they may be solved by man.
No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings."
~John F. Kennedy

"At the bottom no one in life can help anyone else in life;
this one experiences over and over in every conflict
and every perplexity: that one is alone.
That isn't as bad as it may first appear;
and again it is the best thing in life
that each should have everything in himself:
his fate, his future, his whole expanse and world."
~Rainer Maria Rilke

"God does not play dice with the universe;
He plays an ineffable game of his own devising,
which may be compared, from the perspective of
any of the other players, to being involved
in an obscure and complex version of poker
in a pitch dark room, with blank cards,
for infinite stakes, with a dealer
who won't tell you the rules,
and who smiles all the time."
~Terry Prachett

GRAVITAS ~ DM on Tone 



Morgan Freeman, my favorite actor, has a very distinctive speaking voice. He speaks with quiet confidence, calm reserve and comforting authority. There's compassion in his delivery and gravitas in his measured tones.

Mr. Freeman's voice is so compelling that anything he says rings true. And when he speaks, you cannot help but listen.

I want to play the flugelhorn
the way Morgan Freeman speaks.
