Old beginnings
new endings

old endings
new beginnings

life--- a series of the same tired combinations.

In between
a golden mean
or a pie
or a curve
or a full stop.

A famous smile
framed for life.


Different symphonies!

An old conductor
With new casts.

Old scripts
New actors
injecting breath
into tired dialogues.
