Humans (both advanced and primitive) hope to find a new planet suitable for living and breathing outside. #privatejournal – Alma My name comes from the Latin word almus, which means “kind.” It may also be from the Greek word αλμη, which means “salt water.” Or, maybe Portuguese – “The Spirit...

The Last To Fall

As you know, I’m writing “The Pearl Territory” only because I saw Pain with her team in my sleep – like a dream – and I usually don’t see any dreams.

I can almost understand why people leap from bridges… Said Bukowski about November. Ray: WAY. TOO. NICE.  Bukowski: I’m glad you noticed that, Ray! Ray: I’m an expert in swearing, bridges and Novembers. Bukowski: Damn, what about popcorn and buzz? Ray: I’m a very dedicated fan of popcorn and almost untouchable by buzz. ALMOST. Bukowski: Ray, you are nice today. Much nicer than yesterday. I mean, almost worth my attention. Ray: Frankly,...
