I do apologize for being off-line for a bit and missing out on all the trash-stash-don'tstealmycowbloodhash-talk.
but, there are a couple points i'd like to explore further ...
DocNitro reminds us of this thing called "addiction." And, let's be honest here ~ obsessive behavior is ... rather necessary when it comes to achieving great things in sport/art/politics, etc...
And ~ can we not place ourselves in such a darkened light? Can we not see ourselves being offered an elixir that floods with power ... power to achieve all those goals and adulations and riches we secretly covet?
I do have pity for those who must make that decision ~ but I do believe that dreaming of becoming a professional cyclist, or cellist, or painter, or singer, or mathematician is worthwhile and should be supported.
I believe that perfecting a thing, any thing is a journey worthy of a life. And, i don't believe it's EVER too late to start.
... or work harder at.
so, i'm gonna work harder.
