Want to write something here, don't really have the time. About to spring out of here for parts if not unknown then surely less well worn in their familiarity.

Decided the other day that routines are most often born of a failure to penetrate the surface of things, a general lack of awareness. You order the same thing every time at the coffeeshop because you don't know what else is on the menu. Decided this is a key thing to remember. The world is infinitely deeper and more complex than floating along the top would ever suggest. It's like the optical effect when you use a glass (or like we did as kids, an open ended milk carton wrapped in plastic) to look beneath the surface of water.

We only skitter along the surface because we got the idea somehow that this is safer. Safety is always an illusion.
