Scaredy face

“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.”
