  • "For whatever we lose (like a you or a me) / it's always ourselves we find in the sea” - E.E. Cummings Summer is winding down here in New York.

Six years later he did it again because a patron at the same bar didn't believe he did it the first time.  Have an audacious story of your own? Share it ...
