God Bless You, Mr. Vonnegut

Thank you for 84 productive, thought-provoking years.

Thank you for being provocative, and inspiring, and giving me images from Cat's Cradle and Hocus Pocus that still stick with me 15-plus years after I read it (in high school, as many of us do).

I'm sad that you're no longer with us, but I'm glad we had you for 84 years.

Always trying to be kind,
Chris Walsh
