A Fool’s Folly

A Fool’s Folly

Do the best you can until you know better. Then when you know better, do better. ~Maya Angelou Most people make the best decision possible based on the information available at the moment of truth.

Stylized Spines

Books sitting quietly on shelves and the dust of the world creeping into libraries, slowly, persistently, unstoppably.. ~Roberto Bolaño Few things are sadder than a bookshelf full of books where the books are drowning in uniform layers of smooth dust disturbed only by insect footsteps lined like a wobbly drunkard after an all-night binge.

I don’t believe it is ever possible to completely escape our prison cells. But…but we can grow the […]
