Appetites grow by feeding,
same for deprivations.


With a certain blurring of time zones,
and abridgement of dimensional restrictions

“Go ahead, dream of sailing when the tide is out –
everyone else does.”


The greatest prophets and seers
can’t even tell you what the books will look like
at the end of toDAY’s business.
