Thanks to all who inspired and commented on these pieces. Also a special thanks to Kim for editorial and creative suggestions. Her help made many of the following pieces much more clear, concise, and interesting.

If one piece resonates for you, that’s not too bad for being in a universe full of so much emptiness.

I’ve gotten feedback some of my stuff is very bittersweet.

And chocolate is a very interesting substance. On a subway train in Chicago I once found a crumpled newspaper – not a rare occurence on an “L”. One article described some scientist’s belief that the digestion of chocolate triggers a psycho-chemical effect similar to being in love.
