“You know what’s wrong with you, Miss Whoever-you-are? You’re chicken, you’ve got no guts. You’re afraid to stick out your chin and say, ‘Okay, life’s a fact, people do fall in love, people do belong to each other, because that’s the only chance anybody’s got for real happiness.’ You call yourself a free spirit, a wild thing, and you’re terrified somebody’s gonna stick you in a cage. Well baby, you’re already in that cage. You built it yourself. And it’s not bounded in the west by Tulip, Texas, or in the east by Somali-land. It’s wherever you go. Because no matter where you run, you just end up running into yourself.” — Breakfast at Tiffany’s
It is never easier to understand the mind of a bomb-wielding anarchist than when standing amid a crush of those ladies and gentlemen who have the money and temerity to style themselves “New York Society.

“Our page is about the tequila, but it’s also about events and exploring cities. Right now, I’m headed to San Diego for the world championship for dog surfing. Hopefully, we’ll get some great photos of dogs in wet suits.” (The company is in Illinois, but Black operates from his Brooklyn, New York, apartment.)

THE LESSON: Never take yourself too seriously. Dogs in wet suits are awesome.
There is not one human problem that could not be solved if people would simply do as I advise.

Hanover, Germany. Kleines Fest.
You walk through the park. You discover a beautiful table. Each plate has a different story told to you. A nice break from all the jugglers and acrobats and funny people here.
