Damn Words.

In my head it all makes sense. On the superficial level, I tell people that up is down, left is right, night is day and all that “opposite” crap. That’s stuff that’s easy to explain and many simply accept it, even if they can’t imagine it. Yet it’s a lie, like the superficial definition of […]

Prophets in My Midst: The (Good) Lawyer
