X I find myself more and more defined by a disciplined set of routines
which constitute a kind of de facto asceticism. As a result, I find it
increasingly difficult to do anything I don't considered to be
I am an introverted blue collar pilgrim, surviving near the center of the continent, on the fringes of a shopworn civilization. I abide in rooms full of partially-read tomes, each bookmarked with the fragment of a shattered illusion.
