Thoughts in the Dark

Everyone is a moon, and has a dark side which he never shows to anybody.
Mark Twain

We cast a shadow on something wherever we stand, and it is no good moving from
place to place to save things; because the shadow always follows. Choose a
place where you won't do harm - yes, choose a place where you won't do
very much harm, and stand in it for all you are worth, facing the sunshine.
E.M. Forster — "A Room with a View"

A quick update on stuff. And stuff.

In 1998, I started a blog, something I could control very easily and update at my own whim.
Jami Attenberg

Hello, gentle readers. I know, I know. It's been too long. I've actually had a post brewing in my brain for a few weeks now and I've started writing it three times but I always seem to get distracted or veer off track of where I wanted to go with it.
