Writing

"I myself find that I trust my own writing most, and others seem to trust it most, too, when I sound most like a person from Indianapolis, which is what I am."

                                   --Kurt Vonnegut

An Introvert in Paris

"When the high-speed chases and mandatory shoot-outs become too repetitive, I head over to the revival houses and watch gentler movies, in which the couples sleep in separate beds and everyone wears a hat.  As my ticket is ripped, I briefly consider all the constructive things I could be doing.  I think of the parks and the restaurants, or the pleasantries I'll never use on the friends I am failing to make.  I think of the great city teaming on the other side of that curtain, and then the lights go down, and I love Paris."
