It’s a ‘goodly awful thing’ since I trust, IF THERE’S NO LIFE, THERE’S NO BOOK. Here am I in that same division, continually eating like there’s no eating tomorrow (and I’m succeeding as well) what am I saying, give Caesar what has a place with Caesar (your body needs nourishment, give it… your mind needs unwinding, unwind it… your bumbum needs a shake… GOAN DANCE)

Presently to SUMMARIZE (that is me being wry)

I’m going to start …
