Exiles of the Establishment

From Orpheus Alan Lee’s Journal

First of all, what I want is clarity. A way of life that makes sense to me, that brings me satisfaction. I don’t want to half-ass my way through life and content myself with mediocrity. In all honesty, I would rather pierce myself with thick bamboo shoots each morning or stick a tack in my eye.

Okay, maybe not, but this is a time for hyperbole, okay?

The day has finally come when my book collection cannot fit in the house. All five bookshelves were eaten alive in my bedroom, so they insidiously migrated there way into my mother’s. She wasn’t too happy. In fact, she called it the “plague of the mind.

I’m not as sad as Doestoevsky,
I’m not as clever as Mark Twain,
I’ll only buy a book for the way it looks,
And I'll stick it on the shelf again.

I'm glad you liked it-and what's funny is, I'm actually working now on a new section (which is why I'm up so late, lol). Hopefully I'll finish it soon;)

Wow

Have you ever published in a magazine or anything? You should look into that if you're interested. I know Cicada magazine (for teens, but put out by the people who do Cricket and Spider magazines) takes things like that, or maybe YGA magazine which is new. Maybe an idea to fool around with. Regardless, that's cool you're writing so much, makes me happy.
