Hey guys, Donald here.
In a few weeks, this site will be 9 years old. 9 years! And I still know some of the earliest submissions by heart.
But, boy. That’s like 102 in web-years. So it’s time for something new. I’m building that something now with my nights-and-weekend minutes (and plenty of coffee). Buy me a cup?

|What Whisky said to the Lioness|
"Lovers’ tears fall a thousand miles, to rest at last in a lonely sea
a sea of heartbreak and of lost love
Once I was told that they who swim in that sea
would unite with all the broken lovers, from the past and present –
that they, only they, would experience the untold truth and harmony of love
and as a price would swim in that sea forever, understanding love completely
but never finding the shore.
At the end of days, these swimmers are said to become teachers of the new world’s children,
known to them only as the stars
that shine out majestic upon purple skies
under which some lovers dance,
while other lovers cry."
