About me
"Le silence eternel de ces espaces infinis m'effrai" - Pascal
"You get so alone at times that it just makes sense"
Charles Bukowski

"What if the examined life turns out to be a clunker as well?" -Kurt Vonnegut

I think about dying.
About disease, starvation,
violence, terrorism, war
the end of the world.

It helps
keep my mind off of things."
(Survivor, Roger McGough)

"Tell me, what is it you plan to do/
with your one wild and precious life?"

From The Summer Day, Mary Oliver

"Come to the orchard in Spring.
There is light and wine, and sweethearts
in the pomegranate flowers.

If you do not come, these do not matter.
If you come, these do not matter."


"Hello babies. Welcome to Earth. It's hot in the summer and cold in the winter. It's round and wet and crowded. On the outside, babies, you've got a hundred years here. There's only one rule that I know of, babies-"God damn it, you've got to be kind.” - Kurt Vonnegut


“Go thou across the ground; go moan for man; go moan, go groan, go groan alone go roll your bones, alone; go thou and be little beneath my sight; go thou, and be minute and as a seed in the pod, but the pod the pit, world a pod, universe a pod, universe a pit; go thou, go thou, die hence; and of Cody report you well and truly."

"In Watermelon Sugar the deeds were done and done again as my life is done in watermelon sugar".

richard brautigan


"I speak to these people and I speak to you because I cannot help it. It gives me strength, almost unbelievable strength, to know that you are there. I covet your eyes, your ears, the collapsible space between us. How blessed are we to have each other? I am alive and you are alive so we must fill the air with our words. I will fill today, tomorrow, every day until I am taken back to God. I will tell stories to people who will listen and to people who don't want to listen and to people who seek me out and to those that run. All the while I will know that you are there. How can I pretend that you do not exist? It would be almost as impossible as you pretending that I do not exist."

A favorite quote from "What it the What" by Dave Eggers.
