I wonder if LeRoi Jones would write the preface

What is a serious journal (or blog) other than an extended suicide note? Pages of entries, countless words detailing everything leading up to the final moment when you either run out of time or things to say. Cataloging our obsessions, moods, envies, musings, yearning and regrets. Viewpoints ranging from unsophisticated to revolutionary, naive to philosophic. Something left behind to let others know – “I was here and this is what I thought.”

“We all see our lives as stories…If a person survives an ordinary span of sixty years or more, there is every chance that his of her live as a shapely story has ended, and all that remains to be experienced is epilogue. Life is not over, but the story is. – Kurt Vonnegut ‘Deadeye Dick’ p.208

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.
