Figuring out the difference between love in an DH Lawrence novel and love in real life (This used to say F.Scott Fitzgerald but clearly my attitude about love has changed significantly)
Living in a quaint WestEnd bachelor suite writing a novel that I would like to assume will be of interest to everybody with their heart in this city. Also, I am developing the most mutually loving relationship with my adorable black and white kitten. Her name is Persephone, who was Queen of the Underworld in Greek Tragedy. I keep a watchful eye over her to make sure she's not taken away from me by the evil Hades.
