About

I’m a writer and editor and have been living in Charlottesville, Virginia since 1992. Originally from Massachusetts, I moved to Charlottesville after living abroad for a number of years to go to graduate school at UVA. I never planned on staying here, but so far I’ve found no reason to leave.

    I’ve read this article several times now and found it not only well written, but soulful and honest. It is simply astounding what the high of fame does to people, the illusion of self-importance makes lives, ruins lives. We witness it in some form or another everyday. Haines sounded like a fascinating man. Your point about extremes in particular captures I think the correlation between all the figures in the article. One would think it shouldn’t be so much work to be around people. Ultimately, you realize that happiness isn’t worth sacrificing for the temporary triviality of being recognized in this short life. I really appreciated your honesty in this writing. Thank you.

    • Brendan,

      You’re not going to believe this, but I’m reading your comment for the first time…I really don’t check my own website very much, I guess. Anyway, thank you very much for your kind words and for reading.

      All the best..

      Dave
