In short

  • I like to write short stories about the quirky things that happen in life.

    The price of anything is the amount of life you exchange for it.
    Henry David Thoreau

    Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
    Anton Chekhov

    Life is a long lesson in humility.
    James M. Barrie

    Words have a magical power. They can bring either the greatest happiness or deepest despair; they can transfer knowledge from teacher to student; words enable the orator to sway his audience and dictate its decisions. Words are capable of arousing the strongest emotions and prompting all men's actions.


    "We can't stay here, this is bat country." (Hunter S. Thompson)
