About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to keep running and laughing at the same time

ABOUT ME

"If you believe in anything very strongly - including yourself - and if you go after that thing alone, you end up in jail, in heaven, in the headlines, or in the largest house in the block, according to what you started after. If you don`t believe in anything very strongly - including yourself - you go along, and enough money is made out of you to buy an automobile for some other fellow`s son, and you marry if you`ve got time, and if you do you have a lot of children, whether you have time or not, and finally you get tired and you die."
