"August rain: the best of the summer gone, and the new fall not yet born. The odd uneven time."
"Some people cannot see a good thing when it is right here, right now. Others can sense a good thing coming when it is days, months, or miles away."
"A good meal, a good talk, a good fuck — what better way to pass the day?"
"I am nothing but words,
