- Claudia: Why bother if we just keep losing?
- Steve: Because it's not the win, it's the fight. Evil is relentless. It always has been. You take one evil out, and another one pops up to replace it.
- Claudia: Worst. Pep talk. Ever.
- Steve: But if we stop fighting, if we give up, what does that say about us?
- -Warehouse 13, S4E11
Has all but exhausted me.
Toward the unseen shoreline,
Doing all I can
To keep my head above the waves
Upon my forward gazing face,
Always in fear
Of the current,
Of the undertow,
Just as my outstretched toes
Brush against loose sand
And the edge of land
Offers the promise of sure footing,
I am overcome
With a strong desire
To dive backward.
As I consider my packed schedule for the coming month with hardly any fear that I have no downtime for weeks, it occurs to me that perhaps I could write a self-help book on how to change from being an introvert/recluse/”suburban hermit” to actually participating in life. But I’m not sure exactly how I’ve done it, and I’m even less sure I truly have.
