That have always fascinated me. It fascinated Lex, too. Both the good things and bad things that affect your life’s major arcs, “but for”. As I had said in my Epilogue of Neptunus Lex, I just happened to see a post from one of their writers about Lex’s accident, and through curiosity, read a post David recommended. Which ended up putting me on a completly new arc.
The Small Things can bring life-changing events to people, good and bad. Ask any number of people in prison “but for”.
Which reminds me of some of the greatest advice on life I ever received from someone – “Life is nothing more than choices“.
Anywho, I am driving home a few hours ago and spot a cyclist oblivious to the world.
It’s a two-laned road each way, and he is riding down the center of the right lane seemingly without a care in the world. I am watching him as I move to the left lane.
Just then, he swerves right in front of me when I put to the test my ABS brakes. I stop with him in front of the car maybe 2-3 feet, still blithely tooling along. Even the sound of my horn didn’t faze him.
Was he trying to kill himself? I obviously can’t say, but he reminded me of this guy, in his own way sort of a hero to me (in a funny way).
Sometimes ignorance is bliss, sometimes it can kill you.
