According to the gnostic gospels, if you bring forth what’s inside you, it’ll save you; if you do not bring forth what’s inside you, it’ll destroy you. Many writers ache to bring forth what’s inside them, but are challenged by inner…Continue

“A what?” I asked.
“An AFOG,” he repeated. “Another fucking opportunity for…Continue
