I broke up with my boyfriend for about fifteen minutes at one point during the summer and indeed, one of my first thoughts had to do with the *time* I could now funnel into work/my writing. Still, I can't help feeling that the "don't have time for a relationship/too dedicated to work" line is usually a cop-out of some form or other. It's easy to escape into work, not have to deal with the difficulty of intimacy, whether it's looking for it or developing it or even surviving it. Relationships teach you things about yourself that work does not, and those lessons can be tough. If you work as many hours as I suspect you do, Ben, then you require a woman with a rich inner life and need for solitude (so she's not constantly on your case about spending time together), work of her own, and a flexible schedule that she can adapt around yours (otherwise you'll hardly ever see each other). Go for an artist. :)

Love the fear quote, something I've been thinking about lately. You embrace it and work with it and make it work for you, or else fear makes you its bitch. I've always been repulsed by Tyson, but I have to admit that the documentary made him more of an actual person for me. What would he have done, or been, if he hadn't managed to channel so much of himself into fighting? God. Vicious is as vicious does.
