You must've clicked on the wrong link or something, because now you're in The Lair. No one has the attention span to maintain a personal website anymore. You youngins are just too cool for that. I am not.

I started building websites in a time before Tumblr, Instagram, and whatever other social media happens to be big at the moment. I do enjoy Tumblr and, to a far lesser extent Facebook, but for me having a centralized website to collect items from my various interests will always be a necessity. Anyway, here's a random slide show.

She plays in the sand at the beach
Wearing black pants and a t-shirt from a metal band I’ve never heard of
When she was a kid, she used to dig a hole to China

She digs a hole in the beach because she wants to dig a hole in the world
She says it reflects the hole in her heart where her soul leaked out

With glossy black hair that has a red streak in it,
She digs with her bare hands
She says it’s her new purpose in life
As though putting a hole in the world were a worthwhile goal

She says her mom and dad only married to have kids
They divorced when she was 10
Their only purpose in the world
Was to put her in the world

She says she wishes they’d never fulfilled their purpose
She says she wishes she were never born

I tell her it’s a beautiful thing to be so self aware that you’re capable of wishing you didn’t exist.

I tell her to take her parent’s mistakes and turn them into something beautiful
I tell her she’s the only one responsible for her misery
But she just laughs and says, “Fuck you, Zach.”

Because she’d rather sit in the sand and dig a hole in the world.
