Anonymous: You seem to disagree with a lot of things. What are some of the things that you actually do like?

I like people who are not¬†condescending. I like pizza. I like passion. I like sincerity. I like when people have a decent place to sleep at night. I like watching plants grow. I like wolves. I like Sun Ra. I like polished gold. I like drinking wine. I like smoking and drinking. I like Chuck Taylors. I like being the first to step out of an airplane. I like gun cleaning. I like target practice. I like how people expect me to behave perfectly under scrutiny they themselves probably couldn’t handle. I like hugs. I like comfortable silence. I like scratching mosquito bites until they bleed. I like not watching tv. I like moving in the opposite direction of the masses because the masses are almost always wrong. I like passionate kisses. I like helping the underdog. I like sleep. I like leaving the party early. I like laughing. I like not believing in an angry God. I like the way women move.¬†

Get off your knees. 

Driving through Addis Ababa, Ethiopia to Masjid. Feel the streets. 

tfburt: As a writer/journalist myself, I seriously appreciate your work. There's an unapologetic fidelity to truth in it—real, objective observation—that the world needs more of. Keep it comin'.

Thank you.
