No you won’t get everything you want, that isn’t our purpose.

Every now and again, the Achilles tendon will fail and lend a necessary

view from the opposite spectrum. Hubris will declare that moving sideways is

consequential, that focus should be concentrated on tomorrow and the day after.

What usually follows is an offer in the form of perspective. You can ignore the

crucible or realize the cracks within your skin, that they are meant to be

filled with stories rather than defected expectation of promises.
