(I know this is a repost from Forum #1 but its how I'm feeling after seeing it gone.)

Enter a young man at the crossroads who finds an older man sitting upon a nearby rock. The newcomer speaks:

Please come here.
.....I'd rather not go there.
Then tell me of this path here?
.....It is the road to nowhere.
But it must lead somewhere?
.....Yes, it goes there too.

You said where?
.....Down the road, there.
But is that not nowhere.
.....And nowhere is somewhere.
I think I shall stay here.
.....Than you are lost, too.

You know, at first glance, even though it is clever, it doesn't seem to make much sense....but after seeing your comment preceding it, then it does. The feeling is shared, friend Andrew.

Andrew,
I thought this was wonderful nonsense.

Sir Balladeer: Nothing like a little chaotic thought process to help make sense of it all. Glad you enjoyed.

Sey: So do I! Thanks for stopping by, I've enjoyed your work as well.
