the saints and the poets

Living in the "in between" is my theme this year. A friend and I were sitting outside at a pub in Pasadena talking about the GRE and our future. We considered the importance of living in the now. He brought up, Our Town.

Emily: Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Every, every minute?

Stage Manager: No (pause). The saints and the poets, maybe. They do some.
Oh, and then, my high school principal walked by, and I said hello.
