Wild Fact About Me I actually really do love life
My Philosophy Trust the mystery: it got me this far
What Gives Me Hope The pervasiveness and constancy of beauty in the World
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by making democracy democratic by making education free and accessible at all levels, and introducing governance by randomly conscripted citizens; like jury service. Oh, and I'd kill Lotto and free up the counters of corner stores and gas stations for "real" customers who want to by gas, tobacco or a newspaper!
What/who changed my life and why Edumund Spenser's 'The Faerie Queene' because it taught me so much about good writing: succinct, verb-strong, direct, observant.
Quotation Matthew 6: 25-27: "do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life ?"
