A Dark Choice

“The more sand that has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it.
–Jean-Paul Sartre (Source: Wordsmith.org)

Sadly, as some people age, rather than seeing things more clearly and broadening their horizons, they instead choose to hide their head in the sand. From that position, they are especially susceptible to being, uh, used, always in the dark, and unlikely to be able to move very far without losing their head.

    Wise words Russ! I never understood it either, but maybe it’s easier to hide and run than face things.
