Serendipity strikes again, and while I was dithering as to what quote to use for my first piece for The Quote Project, Mark Braun posted a video of Tom Waits reading a poem by Bukowski. That’s like peanut butter and chocolate: it works. Waits’ voice and Bukowski’s sentiments. A fitting combo. Like gravel and sand and fly ash and slag making concrete. Rough ingredients mix together to create a strong result. So I pulled the first line to make my first piece.
I wanted to make it pretty quickly, as it was a busy week. The idea was to get the job done.
