E N G L A N D

For the past two weeks, I have been utterly involved in the world's most famous cup, which can be as time-consuming and stressful as any major incident in daily life. Sadly, today wasn’t the most pleasant day for me and team England, whom I have supported as any loyal fan could ever have. How fair today's match between England and Germany was is a completely different story -- only history will tell what was right and what was wrong.

A token of the outcome is that the life-consuming bliss of this year's World Cup is over for me, so I can now fully focus on the creative side of my life, my writing, poetry, et cetera.

Ladies and gents, shit happens, life goes on, and England and their team will always rock in my heart.
