The party's over. The friends are gone, the uneaten food has been put away, the dishes washed, and even all those drinking glasses have been cleaned. Yes, we had some eclectic drinkers that night.
"For me, I have what I will call, for lack of a better term, My Greater Fear. It is that I will live a perfectly unexceptional existence with this exceptional chance I have been given. My Greater Fear is that I will rot beneath a matrix of fluorescent lights staring at the carpeted walls of a cubicle, or that I will wake knowing exactly what I will be doing every minute of every day for the rest of my waking life, or that I will wait until I am old and enfeebled to give myself permission to live."Yowsa! That does indeed sound like the greater fear. So come on. Make your life the party you want to crash, and then go crash it! We only have one ticket for this merry-go-round. So make the most of it.
