"[My relationships were] like I was in these movies where the script was only half-written. When I’d get to the end of this half-script, the other actors wanted me to ad lib. But I had never gotten the hang of that. That’s why these movies were always box-office failures. Six of them in the past twenty years. I always blew the lines." ~ from my horrible first novel "Learn How To Pretend." (unpublished)(obviously)

Bicycle!!

Here's another bike I like. I'd like bars that were swept back a bit more, or were up higher so I don't have to lean on my palms. A front rack would be nice too.

Cold Mountain Road

What a road the Cold Mountain road!
Not a sign of horse or cart.
Winding gorges, tricky to trace.
Massive cliffs, who knows how high?
Where the thousand grasses drip with dew,
Where the pine trees hum in the wind.
Now the path’s lost, now it’s time
For body to ask shadow: ‘Which way home?’

―Han Shan (approx 700 AD)

Money scares me






Why I'm Terrified of Money

I am terrified of money. If at all possible, I try to ignore its existence. I literally avert my eyes as the cashier hands me my receipt. 

Before I discovered the magic of direct deposit, my bosses had to track me down to hand me my checks. One finally asked why I was the only one who didn't come to the office to pick up my checks on payday and why I never opened them to make sure the hours were correct.
