  3. Very profound statement.


  4. I have found that when you give up the chase, they will come to you.


  5. Somehow, I like his facial expressions.


  6. I’m inspired by JM to write:

    I’m chasing ghosts I’ll
    never catch. Try as I might,
    they’re out of my reach.

    I’m chasing ghosts I’ll
    never catch. Its just as well.
    They keep me in line.
