my spirit-brother tim rogers:
Let me tell you about my life. Life is long. If you’ve ever felt bored or impatient even for a moment at a bank or a post office, your life is long. The only way life can be too short is if you die in the middle of doing something you love doing. Many bad experiences in my life so far have been interesting. For some of them, I learned a lesson. The rest, however, taught me nothing. Not even a couple of those interesting bad experiences so far in my life have been experiences I could not do without.
