The world turns aside to let any man pass who knows whither he is going. – Epictetus

I’ve always had a plan. I’ve always had somewhere to go or something to become. I remember when I was in the hospital 2 years ago, I knew I couldn’t stay where I was.

The crack starts at an initial point and slowly spreads out. We are part of that spreading out process that all occurred from one event billions of years ago.
