About Jaynifer:

Out on this open sea there is no direction other than the one I please. No plausible destination other than the one I find plausible for me. These choices I choose will move this pen into a fine groove, a groove which I can't remove but one I choose.

Jaynifer's Favorite Personal Quote:

People do this a lot. They don’t seem to realize that the future is just like now, but in a little while, so they say they’re going to do things in anticipation of some kind of seismic shift in their worldview that never actually materializes. But everything’s not going to be made of leather, the world won’t stink of sherbet. Tomorrow is not some mythical kingdom where you’ll grow butterfly wings and be able to talk to the animals you’ll basically feel pretty much the same way you do at the moment.
