"When I have fears, as Keats had fears
 Of the moment I'll cease to be
I console myself with vanished years
Remembered laughter, remembered tears,
The peace of the changing sea
And remembered friends who are dead and gone.
How happy they are I cannot know
But happy am I who loved them so".
- Noel Coward

You may also join me in 2010 and beyond on Postcards from Hell's Kitchen blog and/or on my ToddHellsKitch Twitter. profile"
