Today's Tendril...

    Said a rock to a desert cactus, "Ever want to turn yourself into a balloon, just float away, and come to rest in a greener pasture?"

    Replied the cactus, "What's a pasture?"

    "Never mind," said the rock.

    And the rock sighed long after the brutal desert sun finally set and the cold desert night settled on its surface.

Meaning in Decline

Beauty is subjective.
Transformation destroys something.
Chaos is relative.
Order requires power.
Honesty is elusive.
Privacy needs a shield.
Reality is myopic.
Only the struggle lasts forever.
