Sleepwalk, So Fast Asleep

One of my favourite literary quotes comes from Canadian author, Hugh MacLennan.

“But that night as I drove back to Montreal, I at least discovered this: that there is no simple explanation for anything important any of us do, and that the human tragedy, or the human irony, consists in the necessity of living with the consequences of actions performed under the pressure of compulsions so obscure we do not and cannot understand them.”
― Hugh MacLennan, The Watch that Ends the Night

I think that this describes our industry pretty well…

This passage was the basis for the the song Courage by the Tragically Hip, arguably one of (if not the) most Canadian bands in existence (seriously, the entire country basically shut down for the night while a third of the population dropped everything to gather in groups to watch their last concert on August 20/2016).

Anyway, this is the long way of saying that I have no recollection of why I selected the username wayninator for my primary Google account many years ago. But I’m apparently stuck with it.
