    One day I laced the shoes I bought five years ago with one more knot than usual. Because I was going out. I was going out to find something and not to come back. Leave the sun behind me. Where I'm going I don't need luck or faith just my two hands.
    And then I crashed and wrecked and washed on the shore. And I was scared, alone to be forgotten.
    And then comes the red turtle. She glided in…

    "Whenever they raise the postage people need the little stamps."

    The small things, so often overlooked, are the foundations of our society. What a cliche statement to make, yet it seems so far from cliche in Fargo.
