Quaint and quirky.
The quintessional quantam quoter.

Is that quite enough Q's yet?

Vade ocius. Vade longius. Vade procul.

(My attempt at a motto.)

Life is like an in-joke: either you get it, or you don't. No amount of explaining will suffice.

I see, said the blind man.

What's worse, reckless abandon or paralyzing indecision?
And why can't I be in the middle?

Not a Coward

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

You're not a coward.

I walk up to her. She's standing there, waiting for the bus.

You're not a coward.

"Hi." She turns. Oh gosh, she's so close.

You're not a coward.

"Hi!" She smiles at me. She's glad to see you!

You're not a coward.


All it would take is one step. My heart is pounding.

You're not a coward.

"I, uh, see you tomorrow." I smile, but it doesn't reach my eyes. She turns back.

You're not a coward.

I open my mouth, but nothing comes out. I sigh and begin the walk home.

You're such a coward.
