Staring at the Sun (u2 cover)

Staring at the Sun. I want to take a minute and make a comment that bares little relation to the cover song. I am heartened and amazed by the creative bunch of Poets, Musicians, Painters, Photographers, and all around Artists that I get to discover every single day here on WordPress.
