At age 32 J.K. acknowledges his downward spiral by saying he will blow himself out like a candle not wanting to be born again. (note- Nirvana is defined as ‘going away’ like a candle blown out.)

“Operate on intuition. Rest and Be Happy” because “dreams never come true” Life is intuitive. Your life is what you think you should do?

GNOSIS – metaphysical introversion(huh?), apocalyptic certainty. Richard Farina must have borrowed and used a variation of this for the name of his (anti)hero in the novel “Been Down So Long It Looks Like Up To Me”(Gnossos).

About Marcus

Who me? Introverted, neurotic, self-absorbed, increasingly cynical observer of human nature and part time social critic in hiding. Most of my life spent avoiding growing up. The naive idealistic passions of youth have evolved into the eclectic eccentricities of adulthood. Northeast Florida small-town native, related to people I can't relate to. Simultaneously my own best friend and worst enemy. Politically and spiritually unaffiliated, my personal ideologies put me all over the map or off it completely.
