“Because while the truncheon may be used in lieu of conversation, words will always retain their power. Words offer the means to meaning, and for those who will listen, the enunciation of truth.“
The promised time approaches. As we barrel towards the future and leave our primitive roots behind I am fearful that the words I so boldly proclaimed to be present in every iteration of this blog’s redesign might be irrelevant relics of a romantic past.
Out with the old and in with the new has been a very helpful way of thinking for me. I consider myself a futurist living 20 years ahead of our current time and yet I find myself nostalgic for a past i never really liked and fearful of a future I don’t really understand.
Courage is not the absence of fear but rather the judgement that something is more important than fear; The brave may not live forever but the cautious do not live at all.

Lets hope the world doesn’t change faster than we can adapt to it.
