I write for the same reason I breathe - because if I didn't, I would die.
(January 02, 1920 - April 06, 1992)
America is not so much a nightmare as a non-dream. The American non-dream is precisely a move to wipe the dream out of existence. The dream is a spontaneous happening and therefore dangerous to a control system set up by the non-dreamers.
William S. Burroughs
Writing eases my suffering... writing is my way of reaffirming my own existence.
