    Re: Kaminar

    I’m starting to hate the word “safe”. The whole idea that everything, or anything, can be or should be safe is infantile. Nothing worth doing or discussing is “safe”, and if you are only focused on being “safe” then you are not being challenged or being allowed to grow and evolve.

    Actually, that is the crux of it, the more safe something is, the less it can grow & evolve, because the pressure of danger is what makes us evolve and develop.

Greetings from Stonebridge a fictitious city in a fictitious state located in a tri-state area in the interior Mid-Atlantic region. We're in western Queenland, which is really a state unto itself, and not to be confused with Queensland in Australia.

Nothing written on this site should be taken as strictly true, though if the author were making it all up rest assured the main character and his life would be a lot less unremarkable.
