Tilting At Windmills

So we are living in The Land Without Poetry. Don't you know it.

"We admire Don Quixote because he doesn't accept the world as it is. Well, I think that is the function of literature: to make us desire a different kind of world and to create in us a kind of dissatisfaction with the world as it is. I think this is a very important function, because this gives you a kind of motivation to act for changing things, for transforming not only the society but moral values, cultural values."
- Mario Vargas Llosa

Dead Beat could not have put it better himself. Okay so Dead Beat wishes he could have put it so well. Let's all be don Quixote's for a while.
