others I don’t mean to forget. You all are a little bit responsible for these verses. See how
your examples can come back to haunt you.
My personal goal for this book is to express myself with absolute authenticity. I wanted to see
and record my world, my relationships, and myself absolutely authentically. Frankly, I didn’t get
completely there with this book, but I’m getting closer. I hope you will see in these a simple
reality of life that will show me as a kindred spirit or at least a truthful observer of the common
lives that we all lead.
