I’m Brendan and I work as an independent Oracle consultant in Europe.
I like this poem:

“Hope” is the thing with feathers – (314) BY EMILY DICKINSON

“Hope” is the thing with feathers –
That perches in the soul –
And sings the tune without the words –
And never stops – at all –

And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard –
And sore must be the storm –
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm –

I’ve heard it in the chillest land –
And on the strangest Sea –
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.

I saw this brilliant lecture a while back on a really mind-blowing idea…[YouTube removed the video on account of a copyright claim – but it’s back now!].


This is pretty good too, about the Big Bagel in the Sky – I love the typical American self-effacement at the end :)…
