In 1973 I was born, so all overlanding adventures my parents had now included a plus one, and in 1976 a plus two with my amazing sister Heather. Here is the test of wisdom; Wisdom is not finally tested in schools; Wisdom cannot be pass'd from one having it, to another not having it; Wisdom is of the Soul, is not susceptible of proof, is its own proof, 80 Applies to all stages and objects and qualities, and is content, Is the certainty of the reality and immortality of things, and the excellence of things; Something there is in the float of the sight of things that provokes it out of the Soul.

These thoughts in the darkness, why are they? It was really fun to dance to this with a partner. Let the paper remain on the desk unwritten, and the book on the shelf unopen'd!

What gives me to be free to a woman's or man's good-will? Behold, through you as bad as the rest, Through the laughter, dancing, dining, supping, of people, Inside of dresses and ornaments, inside of those wash’d and trimm’d faces, Behold a secret silent loathing and despair.
