A sijo Whenever I compose verses \ based on my perception of the truth, I'm always wondering \ whether they themselves are the ones creating \ the reality they're describing It's no wonder that truth is stranger than fiction. Fiction has to make sense.-Mark Twain (1835-1910)
A sijo Clearly, a divide exists between \ news and reality News reporting is sensational \ due to commercialism I am no postmodernist \ but reality confounds me too
Everyone dies. Everyone leaves. What matters is the things you build together before they go. What matters is the part of them that continues in you when they're gone.-Orson Scott Card (b. 1951)
