  • I've traveled. I've seen a man knock another man out for the last drop of gin in a bottle. I've buried more friends than the years I've been alive. I've slept in the streets. I've seen the lowest of lows, and some of the highest highs. I've shot dope. I've been on the edge of death. I've gotten sober and relapsed twice. I've looked down the barrel of a gun. My feet are on the ground but my heads stuck in the sky. I've painted graffiti with infamous people. I seek not for serenity among material possessions, I look for it in people and places. All over this planet I see too many humans and not enough humanity (if a goal is lacking humanity is it not humanity that is lacking?). I've loved woman and been rejected. I try to do better everyday but don't hold your breath. My name is Leland Davis these are my stories.
