Ethan Hawke - Ash Wednesday (or: hurricanes I)

funny, i thought. an author with the same name like actor Ethan Hawke.

well. turns out the actor actually is the author. and yes, he can write.

I like it when things break down. There's something about a flat tire, or a train getting stuck, or long weather delays at the ariport - any time when the earth stops turning the way it's supposed to - that releases me. For a moment, a space, a breath, I'm not responsible. Sometimes I wish for a tornado or a hurricane, even a war. Anything to stop the inertia for an instant.

those words made me think of Hemingway, "Islands in the Stream". which comes with a hurricane quote, too. i will look for it tomorrow.
