“If we stay where we are, where we're stuck, where we're comfortable and safe, we die there ...
|Eyes in a box 3-16-13|
... We become like mushrooms, living in the dark, with poop up to our chins.
If you want to know only what you already know, you're dying.
You're saying: Leave me alone; I don't mind this little rathole.
It's warm and dry. Really, it's fine.
When nothing new can get in, that's death.
When oxygen can't find a way in, you die.
But new is scary, and new can be disappointing, and confusing -
we had this all figured out, and now we don't.
New is life.”
