When I was in college there was this amazing feeling I used to get leaving the campus and stepping off the subway in some part of the city, knowing that no one knew where I was. The idea was rather thrilling since up until that point, for the most part, people knew where I was, or at least where I was supposed to be.

"You must understand the whole of life, not just one little part of it. That is why you must read, that is why you must look at the skies, that is why you must sing and dance and write poems and suffer and understand, for all of that is life."
I got on the train last night and there was a homeless guy picking at his dirty socks. He looked to be about 70. He had no teeth and no hair on the top of his head... with the exception of little wispy grey feathers of hair around the edges of his ears....more
