About this author

Got off to a bad start as a teenager. Expelled from school. That said I've had an okay life. I've had hundreds of different jobs. Ive done a lot of traveling and met a lot of good people along the way.


I'm in Northern India and the monsoon is in full swing. Everything I own is wet. I've settled in to read Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's, Graham Green's The Third Man, and Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea. I don't have to rate them. They're three of the greatest short stories ever written!

“But that's life. We wander around like blind mice searching for whatever it is we're looking for. From mice to miserable men, from the poetry of childhood's hour to the darkness of death's goddamn dominion, we never stop searching. Why can't we just be?”
Gregory Hughes, Unhooking the Moon

“I suppose it's better to be real people like me and the Rat living in the park than it is to be a phony living in a Fifth Avenue apartment. But what did I know? I wasn't even a teenager yet.”
Gregory Hughes, Unhooking the Moon

“all we see or seem is just a dream within a dream”
― E.A. Poe

“Adults, in their dealing with children, are insane," he [Ed Ricketts] said. "And children know it too. Adults lay down rules they would not think of following, speak truths they do not believe. And yet they expect children to obey the rules, believe the truths, and admire and respect their parents for this nonsense. Children must be very wise and secret to tolerate adults at all. And the greatest nonsense of all that adults expect children to believe is that people learn by experience. No greater lie was ever revered. And its falseness is immediately discerned by children since their parents obviously have not learned anything by experience. Far from learning, adults simply become set in a maze of prejudices and dreams and sets of rules whose origins they do not know and would not dare inspect for fear the whole structure might topple over on them. I think children instinctively know this," Ed said. "Intelligent children learn to conceal their knowledge and keep free of this howling mania.”
John Steinbeck, The Log from the Sea of Cortez
