I just realized that I’m the age when most police officers retire, past that even. I’m Danny “I’m too old for this shit” Glover Years Old.

“First forget inspiration. Habit is more dependable. Habit will sustain you whether you're inspired or not. Habit will help you finish and polish your stories. Inspiration won't. Habit is persistence in practice.”

I’m now convinced that the Jedi would fit right in on an academic committee.

I hate - HATE - Concur with the power of a thousand suns. The simple recording of 3 receipts (hotel, airline ticket, conference fee) becomes a two-hour time trap in a labyrinth Stanley Kubrick would admire. #academia #academicchatter

Apparently there is such a thing as the bibliography committee.
I don’t know how I dodged that bullet, but I’m grateful. #academia

“Everything is either right or wrong, red state or blue state, young or old, gay or straight, rich or poor, Palestinian or Israeli, my way or the highway. Everywhere we are trapped by these old, tired, binary reactions, assumptions, and certainties. For filmmakers and faculty, students and citizens, that preoccupation is imprisoning. Still, we know and we hear and we express only arguments, and by so doing, we forget the inconvenient complexities of history and of human nature.”

“War is hell, but that's not the half of it, because war is also mystery and terror and adventure and courage and discovery and holiness and pity and despair and longing and love. War is nasty; war is fun. War is thrilling; war is drudgery. War makes you a man; war makes you dead.”

I’ve been in Chicago a whole day, and I have as yet to see the Big Shoulders.

Just arrived in Chicago. Cousin not there to greet me with Italian beef. Trip already a disappointment.
