Author bio: Patrick

Author bio: Patrick Hurley wasted several years in grad school … now he’s a bartender. He once wrote a book on Thomas Pynchon. For one year, he tricked a local paper into reimbursing him for drinks by writing a cocktail column for them. Mostly he reads and writes and tries to figure out how to survive without working a stupid job. 62

We’re all headed down the dark path now, with eyes wide open and hands emptied of promise. The dreaded monsters may - or may not - deem to drop in on your dreams, the last glimmers of a time when all was possible, and arrogance wore a sneering smile. In the black grime is where we will claim the inheritance of our true selves, through battle and harsh truths we must embrace, along with the fact that each of us is mired in the marsh of shame for eschewing our kin. To act otherwise brings about insanity. Use this time to unite humanity. To the Women of America I. I would love to say when the smoke has cleared and the tears have washed the ashes from my eyes that it will be okay. We can begin again and the reward is worth the commitment to the long game. 63
