“Personally I like going places where I don't speak the language, don't know anybody, don't know my way around and don't have any delusions that I'm in control. Disoriented, even frightened, I feel alive, awake in ways I never am at home.”
Michael Mewshaw

“I'm not scared of dying. I'm scared of living on and on.”
Michael Mewshaw, Lying With the Dead
