    Maybe it´a bit kitschy - but i really like this
    dialogue between the girl and the ghost in "The
    Ghost of Canterville".
    What do you think?
    `Poor, poor Ghost,' she murmured; `have you no
    place where you can sleep?'
    `Far away beyond the pinewoods,' he answered, in
    a low dreamy voice, `there is a little garden. There
    the grass grows long and deep, there are the great
    white stars of the hemlock flower, there the
    nightingale sings all night long. All night long he
    sings, and the cold, crystal moon looks down, and
    the yew-tree spreads out its giant arms over the
    sleepers.'
    Virginia's eyes grew dim with tears, and she hid her
    face in her hands.
    `You mean the Garden of Death,' she whispered.
    `Yes, Death. Death must be so beautiful. To lie in
    the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above
    one's head, and listen to silence. To have no
    yesterday, and no to-morrow. To forget time, to
    forgive life, to be at peace. You can help me. You
    can open for me the portals of Death's house, for
    Love is always with you, and Love is stronger than
    Death is.'

    I really miss him too. I have been waiting for years to see him dance up the hill of TdF again, but now ....

    What a sad weekend for cyclists.
