"You paid some way for everything that was good. I paid my way into enough things that I liked, so that I had a good time. Either you paid by learning about them, or by experience, or by taking chances, or by money. Enjoying living was learning to get your money's worth. The world was a good place to buy in. It seemed like a fine philosophy. In five years, I thought, it will seem just as silly as all the other fine philosophies I've had."

--Hemingway, The Sun Also Rises

we're miles away from nowhere
and the wind doesnt have a name
so call it what you want to call it
still blows down the lane

Don't take me seriously, this is not a professional forum for my writing or happenings in my personal life.

Things you may see:

awkward grammar.
running sentences.
vague sincerity.
unfinished novel chapters.
stories about strangers.
honest, unedited writing.
