Words matter.
Words are expression and they are freedom.
Words are what I do for a living.
I've waited a week to write this, because I wanted things to calm down a bit after the election. While lefty (and in some cases, righty) protesters engage in riots, and Hollywood... Read more of this blog post »

“I really am a pessimist. I've always felt that fascism is a more natural governmental condition than democracy. Democracy is a grace. It's something essentially splendid because it's not at all routine or automatic. Fascism goes back to our infancy and childhood, where we were always told how to live. We were told, Yes, you may do this; no, you may not do that. So the secret of fascism is that it has this appeal to people whose later lives are not satisfactory.”

“You fell off the tree of fucked-up-weird and slammed every branch on the way down.”
Vincent Zandri, Moonlight Falls: Dick Moonlight

“Maybe I didn't know her as well as I might have wanted. But I can tell you this: love mattered a great deal to Scarlet Montana. I think it must have mattered to Jake too. Because if love hadn't been important to them, they wouldn't have fallen to pieces when it suddenly abandoned them.”
Vincent Zandri, Moonlight Falls: Dick Moonlight

“Because when it comes to memories, what counts is not accuracy, but the feelings they call up.”

Ernest Hemingway

“Because when it comes to memories, what counts is not accuracy, but the feelings they call up.”
Vincent Zandri, The Innocent

“I didn't dare to think of anything then except the "facts." To get beneath the facts I would have had to be an artist, and one doesn't become an artist overnight. First you have to be crushed, to have your conflicting points of view annihilated. You have to be wiped out as a human being in order to be born again an individual. You have to be carbonized and mineralized in order to work upwards from the last common denominator of the self. You have to get beyond pity in order to feel from the very roots of your being.”
Henry Miller, Henry Miller on Writing

Williammaltese Vincent. It's always my pleasure to run across another author, especially one with your impressive credentials. Although, as you've probably noted, I've not exactly been reading a lot of books, these days. Like you, I seem to find it hard to find the time, although you're admittedly doing better than I am. Anyway, glad to meet you. Don't be a stranger!
