I want to do everything I haven’t yet dared to do, and to escape everything I’ve already done. I want to die in a cataclysm of my own making, not in a world war fashioned by great nations. And I want to leave a written record of my passage across this earth, so that others who find it elusive to taste what they desire can know, at least, that I too have searched in vain before them.
Lawrence Sutin, When to go into the Water.
