I Used to Be a Superhero

I used to be a superhero,

Nobody could hurt me,

Not even myself,

You were like a phone booth,

That I somehow stumbled into,

Now look at me,

I am just like everybody else,

I am just like everybody else.

--from "Superhero" by Ani DiFranco

She SCARES me with her brilliance, man. I need to establish an alter to her creativity. Man, I've probably learned as much from listening to how she crafts her songs as from any of my favorite authors.

it sounds like your 'alter' to her creativity has been well established and is quite wide and wooly. ;)

yeah, she's heartbreaking and uplifting. crazy.

Heh. So you've seen the altar. Heh.

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
