“No passion in the world is equal to the passion to alter someone else's draft.” -H.G. Wells
As they came over the hill and down on the other side of it, it is not too much to say that the whole universe of God opened over them and under them, like a thing unfolding to five times its size. Almost under their feet opened the enormous sea, at the bottom of a steep valley which fell down into a bay; and the sea under their feet blazed at them almost as lustrous and almost as empty as the sky. The sunrise opened above them like some cosmic explosion, shining and shattering and yet silent; as if the world were blown to pieces without a sound. Round the rays of the victorious sun swept a sort of rainbow of confused and conquered colours—brown and blue and green and flaming rose-colour; as though gold were driving before it all the colours of the world. The lines of the landscape down which they sped, were the simple, strict, yet swerving, lines of a rushing river; so that it was almost as if they were being sucked down in a huge still whirlpool. Turnbull had some such feeling, for he spoke for the first time for many hours.

"If we go down at this rate we shall be over the sea cliff," he said.

"How glorious!" said MacIan.

(The Ball and the Cross, GK Chesterton)

In the world that calls itself real, I coordinate an engineering journal and edit a human rights journal, drink too much coffee and tea, live in a fabulous old-fashioned apartment in the middle of the woods in the middle of a city, can't seem to manage to wear much that isn't grey or black, sleep with a plushy hedgehog and a plushy Sherlock Holmes, eat sushi for about half my meals, dream big dreams about moving to abroad and small dreams like getting a real hedgehog and medium-size dreams like getting a graduate degree in international affairs.
I might grow up one day, but it doesn't look likely.
