It’s quite unfortunately to cut oneself free. You loose the tether and gain the world but where does this really put me? Providing but many an eternity. To figure it out I had no choice, there is no in between. If I was on earth I’d walk the line, teetering, totterings from side to side. Up here its not that easy, maybe its down here, I’ve lost much track of time. Its not easy to come and go as a I please, you cannot sample with the powers that be.

I would like to talk to you. You know who you are and how to contact me. Our discussion could be quite lighthearted, and you may learn some things I’d rather not share. I’ll be ready when you are.
