"In the land of the lotus eaters time plays tricks on you. One day you are dreaming, the next your dream has become your reality. It was the best of times, if only someone had told me. Mistakes were made, hearts were broken, harsh lessons learned. My family goes on without me while I drown in a sea of pointless p****. I don’t know how I got here, but here I am; rotting away in the California sun. There are things I need to figure out - for her sake at least. The clock is ticking, the gap is widening. She won’t always love me, no matter what."
-- Hank Moody in Californication
