(For a friend)
The recluse must learn to wreck loose from beneath his hermitage—smash thin every ounce of shell remaining attached to such essence—destroy the safe and illuminated trails and pathways, find solace in discovering the wonderment in uncertainty.
As he makes the passage from the dark to bright he must rely upon geography to shield himself from aversions and blight.
Aversions are built and caressed, fine-tuned until it is the only sensation that is left. Yet…
He who treads with caution shall never take the chance that could presumably change his life forever.
This tenet could deter. I believe it to be very understandable. Yet, what often goes unconsidered is that all change is not inherently negative in nature. In fact, change is simply a shifting from one landscape to the next, caring nothing for appearance. It just does what it’s definition says it does, it is man’s reaction to this change, that creates the emotional charge, which, again, can be either constraining or eternally liberating.
