The Problem with Priorities

Understand me. I’m not like an ordinary world. I have my madness, I live in another dimension and I do not have time for things that have no soul.

Charles Bukowski

So you know how I said I’d try to post once a week? Guess what: I lied. It’s been more than a month of radio silence.
