caution: mind-dead ahead

"I’ve always been lonely. I’ve even chosen a lonely path; writing.
That’s why you can call me a loner for writing is masturbatory
just for the reason that I write. That’s why most writers are lean.
No, not because they’re frequently masturbating. They’re just lonely.
Lonely for they eat alone, alone which make them eat less
for they have no one to talk to while biting, munching, and digesting.
But I eat a lot yet I am lean. Maybe I am only lonely.
Not even a writer. No one should proclaim one’s self as a writer."

Yeah, I know that. I've been there -- solitude. I think it's a place.

jords, kahit isolated isla tayo, isa kang fabulous at talented na isolated isla.

let me share with you one of my favorite quotes (gusto ko i-share to nung workshop, pero this slipped my mind, hehe): "We Poets in our youth begin in gladness; But thereof come in the end despondency and madness.” - William Wordsworth

Eva: Wow, isa na pala akong isla? From a baby to a yuppie, ngayon island na? This is one unique metamorphosis. Maybe you can write a poem about this Evangeline! Hahaha!!!

Gillboard: Yeah, it works. You should try it. Ngayon, magpakalonely-lonely ka na! Mag-ingat lang sa mga sharp objects. Hehe...
