The Illusionist

The Illusionist "Dream delivers us to dream, and there is no end to illusion. Life is like a train of moods like a string of beads, and, as we pass through them, they prove to be many-colored lenses which paint the world their own hue. . . . ” ― Ralph Waldo Emerson

Kelli V.'s quotes


"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."— Margaret Mead

Empty Garden (Hey,hey Johnny)
Sir Elton John

“I say in speeches that a plausible mission of artists is to make people appreciate being alive at least a little bit. I am then asked if I know of any artists who pulled that off. I reply, ‘The Beatles did’.” 
― Kurt VonnegutTimequake

(This is an amazingly beautiful and emotional song that was written in memory of John Lennon. The lyrics are just so powerful. “It’s funny how one insect can damage so much grain” really hits hard on how much one can changed the face and course of music forever, and “a gardener like that no one can replace” fits John so well. Give it a listen. If you are a Beatles fan, this one will really hit home for you.)
