This Side of Paradise

I simply state that I’m a product of a versatile mind in a restless generation — with every reason to throw my mind and pen in with the radicals.

Even if, deep in my heart, I thought we were all blind atoms in a world as limited as a stroke of a pendulum, I and my sort would struggle against tradition; try, at least, to displace old cants with new ones.

I’ve thought I was right about life at various times, but faith is difficult.

One thing I know. If living isn’t seeking for the grail it may be a damned amusing game.
