Everything was beautiful. Nothing hurt.

Kurt Vonnegut died yesteray. His chosen epitaph is my header for this discussion. Of all the famous people to have died in my lifetime, this is one of the small handful that brings tears to my eyes. He had no peer. Not everyone has the ability to understnad his work, his dark and strangely hopeful humor, but enough did and have to have made him famous. Am I grieving his passing alone here, or part of a larger crowd?

I didn't know that was his epitaph, it's great! I can just hear him saying that. I have read a few of his books and I loved them. He definitely was different and not everyone can understand his work. I noticed that I didn't really like starting a book of his, but, when I finished, I had really enjoyed it.
