The older I get, the more I believe that we all actually came here just for the grand adventure of it all. Circumstances, relationships, anxieties and fear tamp down the wildness. But it's in every one of us. It just takes a certain kind of courage to let it come out and play. Staring into the face of an eternity from which there is no escape I think lights the fire anew for a lot of us. Mostly, I suspect we just need to shut out all the other noise to let her whisper in our ear that it's time to go.
