"I spent years having an empty affair with things and relationships that I thought were something,but turned out to be little more than nothing. Nothing was a force that took up residence in my life and refused to leave... As you can imagine, my affair with nothing was bloody, brutal, exhausting, empty, and left me lonely... Nothing is not a man... It is an illusion...a ghost, and not a friendly one. It's vanishing always left me with skid marks on my heart. So often my encounters with nothing have been connected to my need and hunger for love... I am grateful and relieved to have finally ended my romance with my hunger."
