To Die Rich In Stories ...

Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. God Himself is not secure, having given man dominion over His works! Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. The fearful are caught as often as the bold. Faith alone defends.

Life is either a daring adventure or nothing. To keep our faces toward change and behave like free spirits in the presence of fate is strength undefeatable.

Helen Keller, extract from “Let Us Have Faith”

And so ... a few years ago, I began changing my idea of success.  It has finally become more important to reach the end of my life 'rich in stories', having lived an interesting life, full of good people and different places.
