of late,

  1. I’m the fool who has all 10,000 crayons in her bag as she steps over the brink. I want all the possibilities, no foolin’.
    But I like how Blake said, “The road of excess leads to the Palace of Wisdom.” Um, do I have to fall over that there cliff? Can I keep all my crayons safe and perfect, along with my illusions?

    But I admire your quest and fearless swordplay, snicker-snack, slicing down the dross.

    1. Heh. My Taoist is showing.

      I need to be careful, or I might slip and chop off my own noggin’ while the rest of me goes galumphing back, quite headless. Now, that would be embarrassing.
