Moral codes are like the ocean. Some people live by them, while others, such as myself, would rather live by a lake.
...I live with regrets - the bittersweet loss of innocence - the red track of the moon upon the lake - the inability to return and do it again...
There have been times I have thought some dreams should never be dreamt, but I would hate a world where that was true.
Becoming a lake has put a lot of things in perspective for me.
I was moved beyond words. The train ride over the mountains from lake Titticaca to Cusco reminded me of Africa where I grew up; and 4 days walking on the Inca Trail, then more in the jungle, just magnificent - time, space, and splendour. Our planet is superb!
I love you Ender. More than ever. No matter what you decide.
I can't say what my first thought was as I sunk below the surface, because it was mostly a string of four-letter words.
