I ain't never none been to Georgia.  It reminds me of  a weeping willow tree that i laid my best friend's ashes under in San Francisco..lots of pine needles and heroin needles...the hint of spastique orchids, crushed oranges, old people with secrets and ghostly white vagina under white umbrellas....SHIT, SORRY...i was falling off and thinking of my closet. 

Shelby, i don't plan anything.  I follow my B.R.M.C. BOOTS and that leads me to the next bridge...and I will burn that bridge when i get to it, my fine friend.

As for books my young blowhard, I would have to sling 'em at ya-
