"Life is essentially a cheat and its conditions
are those of defeat; the redeeming things are not happiness
and pleasure but the deeper satisfactions that come out of struggle."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald
Entry 9 - Intent
There are certain times in your life when you put yourself in situations knowingly. I dont really believe much in the idea that anyone is ever really innocent. Perhaps the only time I can really think where I may have been an "innocent bystander" is as a baby. Even then, thinking back now as that "innocent and unsuspecting" egg in my mothers womb calling closer my fathers very intentionally swimming sperm I may have had some clue that letting that sperm weasel it's way in might just begin something terrible, and that was a choice. A knowing and intentional choice to let the chaos begin.
