"It was imprudent of us, in the first place, to become authors. We could have become something regular, but we managed not to.
We were lucky, but we were also determined." Roy Blount Jr

"I don’t change the facts to enhance the drama. I think of it the other way round, the drama has got to fit the facts,
and it’s your job as a writer to find the shape in real life."
Hilary Mantel

The mercury is zooming upwards, it's now nearly 50 degrees. The snowscape all around is evaporating.

I could weave analogies about how the frenzied attention directed towards our state's voters will evaporate the instant our Primary results are known. But I haven't time to wax literary...I'm off to my polling place!
