No. Just mining for material. Wordsworth wrote a massive amount of poetry, much of it forgotten. I simply scour old anthologies for stuff nobody remembers, trot it out in interviews or performances when there's nothing better to say, and come across looking sparkling and brilliant when I'm essentially just a vaudevillian myna bird.

An antidote, nonetheless, and one that will not be lost on you.

Primal Wound.

A book on how and why adoptees are sometimes so very, very messed up in the head.

"Mixed Bag", by Jim Rikhoff. I've only read the dedication page, and had to set the book down to keep my teardrops from soiling the page. I'll pick it back up later this evening.
