And then you let go, and everything crashes. Securities are shaken, confidences tremble and fall. It hurts, you hurt, and you gasp for breath but it feels like there is none, just like the floor underneath your feet, which dissolves into thin air.

“As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler”
-Henry David Thoreau
