“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.”
― Calvin Coolidge

I tied my keys to my belt buckle so I wouldn’t lose them.  My lovely long distance boyfriend, my one and only that I was staying with, wouldn’t mind if I went out dancing while he stayed indoors in the negative 20 degree weather to make music while I physically slaughtered my demons with plasticman or the likes in my ears.  He was an amazing maker of music, so we had that connection. He understood my urgency, as I understood his stillness.

So,  it’s past midnight, way past midnight, the morning call may be on, great night of dancing, i make it home, keys on my belt buckle, which now as it’s so cold outside has frozen on. Im 5 inches shorter than the door. I try 5 times to hoist myself pants up with key to open the door. no luck.

so off come the trousers, to get the key to open the door.

in i walk. there sits a bottle of whiskey and writing paper. a love note. love
