one sentence for a lifetime

Sunday, August 10th, 2003 at about 1:31 am

I want all of you to describe yourselves in one sentence. One sentence, that’s all you get. There’s something about condensing an entire consciousness to one simple utterance that has a sort of shocking, sensible simplicity to it. Your sentence changes as you get older. People change, of course. But at any given point to look at yourself as nothing more than a few choice words arranged according to decent syntax, that’s a pretty powerful thing, isn’t it? I’m all about the simplicity, all about contained power of description. I happen to be terrible at it: I’m about as long-winded as they come. And, noting this, I’m going to leave it at that.
