Favorite Quote:
"Man is free at the moment he wishes to be"
-Voltare


A dust devil, obscuring the red sun,
Flies steadily over the desert plain.
A blizzard, obscuring the blue sky,
Flies steadily over the mountain peak.
The people down below look up,
Their skin cracked from heat and parched from thirst,
Praying for the blessing of a blizzard.
And the people up above look down,
Their skin frozen with cold and soaked with snow,
Praying for the blessing of a dust devil.

Sometimes the lesser of two evils is the one that you don't have to deal with at the time.
