I found this on the shelf in Suze's beach house in Puerto Penasco - a great read!

"I don't want it.
It's not a part of me.
Throw it away, Aron. Be rid of it.
I thrash myself forward and back, side to side, up and down, down and up. I scream out in pure hate, shrieking as I batter my body to and fro against the canyon walls, losing every bit of composure that I've struggled so intensely to maintain. Then I feel my arm bend unnaturally in the unbudging grip of the chockstone. An epiphany strikes me with the magnificent glory of a holy intervention and instantly brings my seizure to a halt:
If I torque my arm far enough, I can break my foream bones.
Like bending a two-by-four held in a table vise, I can bow my entire goddamn arm until it snaps in tow!
HolY Christ, Aron, that's it, that's it. THAT'S FUCKING IT!"
