Part Of A Letter To Troy

Emptiness is, I suppose, the natural state of intense and passionate people, when life is not as intense and passionate as they are – which is usually. You once spoke of living life to the fullest, about jumping forth and, in the words of Arnold Horshack, “grabbing all the gusto you can get.” By leaping into that fire you face certain death, but by resisting its temptation you also face certain death. It’s just a different kind of death. A slow, painful death. But which is preferable? Because, after all, “the devil that you know is better than the devil that you don’t.”
