Some of my friends have been giving this oneword thing a go. Dee, Professor P , MichaelO , Thom G … Quinn Browne has been especially prolific, has turned out some real beauties. So call me a lemming. Anyway, the word was “surround” and I was typing like a fiend and the dang bell went off when I was on “…you should find…” and I wondered what to do. I looked around, no one was watching, so I just finished, ha!

He was just a kid, 20 or so. I’d known him for a month or two. I knew his dreams, he knew a little of me. He confronted me in the hallway. I had stuff to do. He said they can’t help me here. I said I know, they’re doing nothing for me either. He asked me what I thought he should do. I told him I’ve heard tell that you should surround yourself with the people who do what you love to do, live how you want to live, and soon you become that. I said you should find a community of people, leave this place. He nodded, head down. I know that, he said, but I can’t. Me either, I said, and continued down the hall. I had stuff to do.
