In the depths of my being, a strange certainty, deeper than reason, entirely animal in quality, filled me with terror. The same certainty which some beasts-sheep and rats feel before an earthquake. Awakening in me was the soul of the first men on Earth, such as it was before it became totally detached from the universe, when it still felt the truth directly, without the distorting influence of reason- The 'Boss', Zorba the Greek

The Race

On your marks...
Get set..
GO!!!

She takes off , sprinting, *puff puff*. Passes one person, the next, and another..She is going to come first-she KNOWS it..She laughs to herself..She knew this would be easy but this is ridiculous. No competition.

What if they are just letting her pass them so she gets tired? What if this is a fix up? What if winning isn't the greatest thing?
Over analysis... She's slowed down and she doesn't even know it. What if? What if?

She's walking now...The finish point looks so far away. She stops. She sits down.

Everyone has passed her by and she is sitting and wondering, "What if..."

its perfectly ok.. in fact 'good' once in a while.. to just sit and wonder "what if".. winning was never the greatest thing..

...most important conversations are the ones that you have with yourself!
