Well as a kid I did not get Shakespeare. I just never understood it.

What's that line from TS Eliot? To arrive at the place where you started but to know it for the first time. I'm able to write about a breakup from a different place. Same brokenness. Same rock-bottom. But a little more informed now I'm older. Thank God for growing up.

There were a lot of people who were a little afraid of the rage or blaming stance I was taking and find what I am doing now more refreshing.
