Quote of the Day
In my writing I am acting as a map maker, an explorer of psychic areas, a cosmonaut of inner space, and I see no point in exploring areas that have already been thoroughly surveyed.
William S. Burroughs
I always wanted to be an explorer, but - it seemed I was doomed to be nothing more than a very silly person.
