Out of the Blue

I want to offer best wishes to one of our beloved regulars here, as today is Ray Marden's birthday. Here's hoping it's a good one Ray... Was Beyond Good & Evil your present? In honor of the occasion, I will quote a recent post from Ray:

"Let's all be pro-human or pro-Earth; screw fighting over race, sex, location, etc."

Werd! (Thanks Enahs.)
