“People just want you to see them as they hope to be seen. And everyone wants to be seen as interesting.” – “World Gone by” – Dennis Lehane
Good morning to all of my friends, family, associates and other assorted human beings. A shout out as well to all of you liars, cheaters, scumbags, dirt bags, thieves, or – “politicians” as you are most commonly addressed.
A friend of mine recently asked me how I was doing………………………..and what I was doing?
For those of you who have never worked a gate, let me tell you that the latter defines rhetorical. How am I doing? A more appropriate query would be how are you coping?
With legerity, I bounced around inside my skull, seeking an answer to those innocuous concerns.
How does one make the mundane interesting?
Read a good book. That is how I cope with madness.
So my friend………………………..don’t ask me what I am doing?
Ask me what I am reading?
That I will respond to with love and good conversation.
