Life, friends, is boring. We must not say so. After all, the sky flashes, the great sea yearns, we ourselves flash and yearn, and moreover my mother told me as a boy (repeatedly) ''Ever to confess you're bored means you have no inner Resources'.' I conclude now I have no inner resources, because I am heavy bored.John Berryman
