day you're five and getting dropped
off for your first day of kindergarten. You make
new friends and open your young

all the versions of

More time
passes. Friends come and
go, as do opportunists you're too scared to take, and affinities for
various hobbies.
I hope you find ones you stick with.

The road to yourself is a fairly
long, scary, winding road that at most times seems

cities to visit.

Many roads
to travel and many
cities to visit.
