I was born a month late and very sick, so I guess medical science. After that, it was because I always thought, no matter how down I was, that something good was right around the corner. And of course “Tired of living, afraid of dying” sometimes came into the picture. Then i thought, better enjoy what time you have left. I’m lucky, too–did so many stupid things. Used to hitchike until one day a man picked me up. Then he said, “Mind if I pick some things up at the hardware store first?” After he got out of the car, I couldn’t help picturing him buying rope, hammers, tools of torture. Left the car and stopped hitchiking after that.
