Greedy. Insatiable. Gluttonous purveyor of the unobtainable.

A collector of knowledge stacked to the sky like a house of cards

leaning into the wind. I devoured insight like a wolf scraping every bit from

brittle bones. I consumed opportunities for observation until I lost sight. A sage devoid of soul. An attempt to grow stunted by failure to think outside that crystal box. My delight in creating a world too complex muted satisfaction. My bankroll of facts left me destitute. And then, an epiphany.

A mission to gather without consuming is suicide.


Stop overthinking

Finally I understand

the simplicity of life
