“Comes a day when everything you thought you had put behind you sets up its tent in the middle of what you were still hoping you could call tomorrow and yells out, ‘Right this way.’

Well, here I come.”
Laird Hunt, Kind One

“I wanted, I told her, to lie under the stars and smell different breezes. I wanted to drink different waters, feel different heats. Stand with my comrades atop the ruin of old ideas. Plant my boot and steel my eye and not run.
I said all this to my dead mother, spoke it down through the dirt: there was a conflagration to come; I wanted to lend it my spark.”
Laird Hunt

“There are no poor men. Not even among the wretches.”
Laird Hunt, In the House in the Dark of the Woods
