Favorite Quote:
"A little nonsense now and then, relished by the wisest men." -Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory

An aged man is but a paltry thing,
an echo of a former glory.
He may be wise and brave,
but is hindered by his story.
A tale of life in an age forgotten,
with death a starring role.
He closes his eyes and remembers,
the dreams and memories he stole.
