Change or Die | 変更または死ぬ | Mutata aut Morere

I'll miss the sea, but a person needs new experiences…
They jar something deep inside; allowing him to grow
Without change, something sleeps inside us, and seldom awakens
The sleeper must awaken!

---Duke Leto Atreides, DUNE (F. Herbert)

If you want to become whole, let yourself be partial
If you want to become straight, let yourself be crooked
If you want to become full, let yourself be empty
If you want to be reborn, let yourself die

If you want to be given everything,
give everything up.

---Tao te Ching, 22 (Mitchell, 1989)

... Your imagination will be fired. Life will mean something at last. The most satisfactory years of your existence lie ahead. 

----Alcoholics Anonymous 152:2 (excerpted)

Welcome as a witness to a fools journey out of the darkness. I welcome all tidings - you are all my teachers on this path toward a meaningful and purposeful sobriety.
