The google-eyed science professor,
Told the leonine exiled contessa,
"If you promise to love me, I will marry above me,
And the greater will cleave to the lesser"

 News from the dark side - 'Opus employee Dan Knishkowy and his friend Anna Paikert organized Sunday April 7th's live original music and readings in Opus 1. Local talent abounds!  Next Sunday: This semester's second HUM Storytelling session in Opus 1 at 5:30 pm -- we hope to see you there.


The work-a-day world takes its toll,
You may gasp for a grasp of the Whole,
To trade virulent clatters, for something that matters,
Put your hands on the shape of a bowl.

Personalities of the week: Steph and Sophie; Hands to work, hearts to God.
