There were times when he felt his life was topsy-turvey and upside-down and every other cliche he could pull from his mind; too much going on, like trying to line up airplanes on a street with the confusion of taking off and wheels up all while cars drift along the asphalt. This was his life: wings folded in confusion and the need for air beneath.
"There are books in which the footnotes or comments scrawled by some reader's hand in the margin are more interesting than the text. The world is one of these books."
~George Santayana, philosopher (1863-1952)
