“Maybe my mesolithic tribal ancestors were members of the wolf clan.” — that could be, you never know! I find wolves quite noble and magical although I agree that wild ones are probably best at a distance.

I have definitely taken the road less traveled and found greater peace and happiness there. It’s not all roses, but then again, what is? Frost is a favorite of mine. Like him, I have a bit of a lover’s quarrel with the world.

“I hold your doctrine of Memento Mori.

And were an epitaph to be my story

I’d have a short one ready for my own.

I would have written of me on my stone:

I had a lover’s quarrel with the world.”
