The Dr. in the Morning

Just doing a bit of early morning reading to jump start my day, and here is Dr. Hunter S. Thompson with some pearls of wisdom: “Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only real cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas.”

    The poem of the day from Poetry Daily feels pertinent:

    They Had Torn Off My Face at the Office

    They had torn off my face at the office.
    The night that I finally noticed
    that it was not growing back, I decided
    to slit my wrists. Nothing ran out;
    I was empty. Both of my hands fell off
    shortly thereafter. Now at my job
    they allow me to type with the stumps.
    It pleases them to have helped me,
    and I gain in speed and confidence.
