  • I wanted to discover what lay beyond conception, remote & ineffable, utterly strange. Within the wretchedness of mere existence my heart grew sick, and utter horror sounded within

  • In the form of a hacking cough and sneezing. The whole room was filled with people staring at me. I walked out the door closed behind me. The birds sang everywhere and one brought
