There is no solution to the human condition. We rape and kill everything that gets in our way, all in the name of progress, under the banner of dominion. This disgusting behavior has perpetuated itself to the point where there is no turning back. We can't undo the mass killings that have become a part of our very nature. We take and take, and in a pathetic attempt at retribution, we set up programs that are meant to undo thousands of years of damage. There is no band aid for extinction, or suture for the destruction of natural habitats. There is no turning back, just slowing down. We have set into motion a catalyst of change that will forever leave its mark on the world, and for what? A steak dinner? A feather pillow? A bigger home to house the things that we so desperately cling to in an attempt at godhood? Humanity is worse than any virus because we were blessed with the ability to choose. Are you happy with your decisions?

Over a year has gone by since I started writing Terra Incognita, and here I am, on the cusp of having it published (for the 2nd time). It has been a long journey filled with great ideas, bad ideas, hours of writing, and many more rewriting. I'm ready for the editing process to be done so I can get back to the grind of creating and crafting. The procedure is long and arduous, but the pay off is so gratifying that it makes every second worth it. It's sad to think that the worst may be before me though. Facing that first review, for better or worse could make or break me. Only time will tell. For now, I will keep writing.
