4/30 Sherman Alexie

I had the pleasure of hearing Sherman Alexie share again!
Does this still count as Something New?
Definitely - it was a different venue and I went by myself.

Haunted man
Hurt man
Broken hearted man

realize.
Is that an excuse?
A good reason.
Can you forgive me?
Haunted man
Hurt man
Broken hearted man
You don't know me either.

How do you feel when you're misunderstood?
How do you feel when you're blamed?
How do you feel when truth punches you in the face?
