…down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid. He is the hero; he is everything. He must be a complete man and a common man and yet an unusual man. He must be, to use a rather weathered phrase, a man of honor—by instinct, by inevitability, without thought of it, and certainly without saying it. He must be the best man in his world and a good enough man for any world.
He will take no man’s money dishonestly and no man’s insolence without a due and dispassionate revenge. He is a lonely man and his pride is that you will treat him as a proud man or be very sorry you ever saw him.
The story is this man’s adventure in search of a hidden truth, and it would be no adventure if it did not happen to a man fit for adventure. If there were enough like him, the world would be a very safe place to live in, without becoming too dull to be worth living in.
Looking forward to:
New movies, especially the Veronica Mars movie
New music from Rob Thomas
More 90’s band comebacks
More art making, especially printing
An art-related job
More connections with other artists
A chance to fix some regrets
Love or a lot like love
Moments that only happen in Rom-com movies
Be a better yogi
Take more chances
Make more time to read
Be more motivated
“Maybe it’s time to be clear about who I am. I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can’t live without each other love. and I don’t think that love is here in this expensive suite, in this lovely hotel, in Paris.”—Carrie Bradshaw, Sex and the City
