Favorite Quote:
"I have a very pessimistic view of life. You should know this about me if we're gonna go out. You know, I - I feel that life is - is divided up into the horrible and the miserable. Those are the two categories, you know. The - the horrible would be like, um, I don't know, terminal cases, you know, and blind people, crippled. I don't know how they get through life. It's amazing to me. You know, and the miserable is everyone else. That's - that's - so - so - when you go through life - you should be thankful that you're miserable because you're very lucky to be miserable."

A quilt of color lies beneath it,
As it slices the heavens
Like a blade through margarine.
The geometric pattern seen only
By the vigilant eyes
Of the single screech skimming
Over, around, and through the clouds
What a wonder to behold.
I might wonder if he
Views an equally stunning prospect.
I wish to ask if he sees
A flowing river flanked by lush,
Green, rolling mountains that climax
In stunning ivory apexes.
I only dream of what he sees
As he flips through the sky,
For I know it is an image
That will never amaze my eyes
