“If I must have a mind that races

at a million thoughts per minute,

considers every possible conclusion

and detail with maddening

precision. If my mind is doomed to

be occupied by a singular obsession,

for the love of God I am glad it is you.”

După discuția matinală despre misterele universului, a venit timpul să ne urnim din loc. Am chemat un uber și am purces la drum pe direcția cartierelor de dormit.

I stumbled across a Facebook status by an author friend who posted that he was about to start work on the ‘0.01% of being a writer’ that was building his personal brand (the other 99.99%, to his mind, being writing).
