97. It's all illusion
I just wanted to pick the one I stuck with.

Some of us were deliberately ignoring the human condition, comfortable in the art of joyful participation. Now the conflict has escalated until ascendance or fight are the only choices, and unfortunately I haven't talent for ascendance.

I don't like the stakes or the odds. I don't like the lack of choice recognition of consequences brings. Any time not dead is a good time to be alive, but this work will involve unpleasantness as yet unappreciated. To me, this conflict is neither romantic nor fun - it is mandatory. That's all I'm saying.

But at least the company is excellent.
