i promise, nothing is real... it just struck me one day while i was out on a boat how pretty the water was... and there came the story idea... (not even connected i know) but your concern touches me...
Do not pass by my epitaph, traveler.
But having stopped, listen and learn, then go your way.
There is no boat in Hades, no ferryman Charon,
No caretaker Aiakos, no dog Cerberus.
All we who are dead below
Have become bones and ashes, but nothing else.
I have spoken to you honestly, go on, traveler,
Lest even while dead I seem loquacious to you.
Fill your paper with the breathings of your heart...
-- William Wordsworth
