Swiveling in his command chair, he gasped as one ergonomically designed chair arm swept his coffee cup from its mount, slinging the contents across the control panel; screw the ruined computer -- it was his last cup of coffee.

I notice as I write this that I seem to be attracted to danger. However, I'm also attracted to going back to the land and leading a simpler life.

I have to admit that two places I have always wanted to go are Mrs. Piggle Wiggle's farm, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. What would I do there? Why, I'd sleep on antique beds, bathe in the restrooms and look for coins in the fountain.

J.R.R. Tolkien
“All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

From the ashes a fire shall be woken,
A light from the shadows shall spring;
Renewed shall be blade that was broken,
The crownless again shall be king.”
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Fellowship of the Ring

“It is never too late to be what you might have been.”
