that badly? Does it even matter?
You're either an artist, or you're not.
No middle ground. If

there are suspicions - signs,
And you're worried."

Thanks for this, and for your very entertaining blog. I'll admit to many untold hours of contemplation about our hometown, whether I want to spend them that way, or not. It's times like these that make me wonder how truly boring it would be to have been born in Sarasota.ReplyDelete
Hope you're enjoying my old stomping grounds of SF as well -- great city, perhaps my favorite American city. That's why I'm not living there ... too much of a good thing, right?
Spoken like a true Flintoid.
