Rachel A. Brune graduated from the NYU Tisch School of the Arts in May 2000, and was immediately plunged into the low-stakes world of entry-level executive assistant-ship.

Road Trip!

Set out runnin’ but I take my time, a friend of the devil is a friend of mine…





I’m not sure why long road trips immediately put me in the mood for some Grateful Dead, but this one in particular took us through Reno, NV, and so this song has basically been stuck in my head for three days. Given that it IS a Dead song, my brain DJ has almost gotten to the last verse, after which it will hopefull...

Rachel Brune shared a quote
A sudden attack of melancholy at the thought of parting ways with this series.
Sharpe's Revenge by Bernard Cornwell
“They had marched all the soldiers’ miles together, and now their ways parted. They would promise reunion, but such promises were so rarely kept.”
