What would be the mood to match?
Who would find the point to catch?

I wonder, still, about this. And I like the photo!
Is it always necessary to produce something each moment? Or to be singing or dancing or playing or drinking? Or contributing to society? I wonder this when I hear people comment that they will sleep when they are dead (and I have heard or read this comment on a number of occasions). What would they do instead of sleep? Non-stop party?

Bewitched, bothered and befuddled am I!
