The world is so full of a number of things,
I’m sure we should all be as happy as kings.

Chapter Seven: Storm

But you, of all people, know how fast the weather can change.
- Patrick Stewart as Prof. Charles Xavier, X-men III: The Last Stand (2006)

[This post has been subsumed in the following one in a rewrite. Please continue there.]


  1. "Rise a horse across Mongolia."
    Should this be "race" or "ride"?

  2. No swimming with dolphins?!

  3. @Jes: Thanks. Corrected.
    @Ben: Ugh. Kahretsin sociopaths of the seas. No thank you. ^_^

  4. All very dramatic, adrenaline-activating, conflict-oriented goals?

    (Well, except maybe the book-writing one... and that just depends on how you write...)

    Noticed there are no "meeting your heroes" type of goals in this. Is that for the scope of the story here, or just something about yourself and your goals?

  5. @Andrew: I got heroes? Lol. Actually, I did meet them, though I didn't know they would be my heroes.
    I thought some of them were rather tranquil: Diving, riding a horse across the steppes...
    But yeah, I suppose I need the world to rub against me, to feel it all around me...
    As Oriana Fallaci writes in "Nothing and so be it", life is something that needs to be filled, without losing any time. Even at the risk of breaking it.
    I believe that.
