I’m feeling the effect of stress in living in this world. I feel like a vibrating tuning fork, on the edge of a precipice. One more seismic shift, and I’ll fall of into the abyss. And no one knows what’s in the abyss, the name alone is terrifying in its sibilant sound, like a malicious snake’s tail. So, forgive me if this is short — I am tired.
