“We connect through our dreams. Like we could be a thousand miles apart and I'd still know you were there.”
Pete Hautman, The Big Crunch

Pete Hautman

“You ever watch a football game and get totally into it? Why? It's not a real battle. It's just a game somebody made up. So how can you take it seriously?

Pete Hautman, Godless
