“Come to the edge,” he said. “We can’t, we’re afraid!” they responded. “Come to the edge,” he said. “We can’t, We will fall!” they responded. “Come to the edge,” he said. And so they came. And he pushed them. And they flew.” ― Guillaume Apollinaire. The times when I am the happiest, the most alive, the most present, is when I’m standing on the edge.

Will I go broke putting money and effort into a pipe-dream, when playing it safe is, well, safer? In the end, I go back to a vision I have of my future life. I’m living in Europe walking briskly down a freshly rained cobblestone street, and am carrying a black back-back for my computer and notes.
