“There is no dishonor in wisdom.”
James Welch

“He had followed the calendar, the years, time-
Bird farted.
And it came to me, as though it were riding one moment of the gusting wind, as though bird had had it in him all the time and had passed it to me in that one moment of instant corruption.”
James Welch, Winter in the Blood
