This is my very first post. Historians will reference the capital “T” in the previous sentence as the beginning of a new era of humanity, a time of enlightenment somehow qualitatively different from those that preceded it. A time of peace.
WordPress has provided an image for free with my free account. It terrifies me. It makes me think of one of my greatest fears–being abandoned at sea with no external form of flotation, futilely splashing about in desperation and panic with no sense of direction or hope, waiting for exhaustion to overcome my fleeting, reptilian will to live until my muscles freeze and I sink into breathless darkness. This would be my last living vision. I would be dead in the next instant. With the inauguration of the next president of the United States of America just one week away, I could think of no better image. Thank you, WordPress. You inspire me.
