'Let it never be said
The Romance is dead
'Cause there's so little else
Occupying my head’

"I know a wise Buddhist monk who, in a speech to his fellow countrymen, once said he’d love to know why someone who boasts that he is the cleverest, the strongest, the bravest or the most gifted man on earth is thought ridiculous and embarrassing, whereas if, instead of ‘I’, he says, ‘we are the most intelligent, the strongest, the bravest and the most gifted people on earth’, his fellow countrymen applaud enthusiastically and call him a patriot. For there is nothing patriotic about it. One can be attached to one’s own country without needing to insist that the rest of the world’s inhabitants are worthless. But as more and more people were taken in by this sort of nonsense, the menace to peace grew greater."
– ― E.H. Gombrich, A Little History of the World

If I could go back in time, with the stipulation being that it had to be back to Middle School and to do one thing, I would read Harry Potter.

Wasted years.

Almost went back to Twitter, but my comments were too long.


It’s the thirteenth of May,

And a wonderful day.
