"- don't be so quick to knock it. People don't usually part with the weird shit they personally know because they know how easy it will be to punch holes in. Now I'm tellin you somethin. It's for you to poke through the soup and find the meat." John Patrick Shanley's 'the dreamer examines his pillow'

May you never cease to find this earth and its people awe-inspiring, strange, challenging, endearing, and may you never be without a corner to return to.

I love you.

Horace Odes 2, 6, 13-14

“This little corner of the earth
to me smiles
beyond all others.”

To my dearest friends, who have never allowed me to remain less than interesting, and who I am sure I will have to stretch my heartstrings across the earth to follow, which I will do gladly and ever so gratefully.
