which I have got a hold of for the moment,
and I want to make it burn as brightly as possible
before handing it on to future generations.

Brief is life but love is long.
- Alfred Lord Tennyson

We fear the unknown,
perhaps more than we fear anything else,
and yet we are, at heart, adventurers.
We seek to expand our realm of knowledge and dominion.
Perhaps we are attempting to overcome and crush the unknown,
but our duel with the unknown is such a one-sided clash
that we must know in our hearts
that our adventure is no more than a child's game.
Perhaps we hope that the unknown
is like the darkness of a cave
and that the brief light of our adventurer's candle
can illuminate the entire cave.
Nonetheless, the path of the adventurer
is a path of joy, while the way of fear is one of suffering.

pound pillows, scream, curse.
Then take a deep breath, and get over it.
