The Crime We Inflict Upon Ourselves

Expected Pain vs. Unwelcome Pain

Today I was certain which came first. First I had the egg and then a couple of hours later – pain reared its head – searing blinding pain. I didn’t know if I was going or coming.

Henry David Thoreau urged us to go confidently in the direction of our dreams and live the life we’ve imagined.
