Paul Keily is a wily old chap. A winey, bold, map. An intense snicker wrap. Music and the arts, his forte; do forget being sporty. Noise, colors, brightness, lightness, oneness, openness, closed-ness, everything-ness. Ness. G-ness. Genius. Is Paul.

Read him and weep. Read him and sleep. AND MOST IMPORTANTLY, read him and keep. Paul Keily: keep him or weep.”
