Musings

An entire generation pumping gas, waiting tables, slaves with white collars. Advertising has us chasing cards and clothes, working jobs we hate so we can buy shit we don't need. We're the middle children of history man, no purpose or place, we have no Great War, no Great Depression, our great war is a spiritual war, our depression is our lives. We've been all raised by television to believe that one day we'd all be millionaires and movie gods and rock stars, but we won't and we're slowly learning that fact and we're very pissed off.

Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club

I fell in love with her courage, her sincerity, and her flaming self respect. And it's these things I'd believe in, even if the whole world indulged in wild suspicions that she wasn't all she should be.

I love her and it is the beginning of everything.

- F. Scott Fitzgerald
As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life - and travel - leaves marks on you. Most of the time, those marks - on your body or on your heart - are beautiful. Often, though, they hurt.
~ Anthony Bourdain June 25th, 1956 - June 8th, 2018
