This life isn’t in making the “best” decisions,
it’s in simply deciding.
I think, being the sum of my flaws,
that I embrace what it means to be human
when I come to terms with them,
and become less of it when I carelessly race to strip them off for perfection
– everything, but nothing all at once.
I don’t want to deny running with these people on equal terms
because I’m either in it or not
this race is a human one.

Julian feels he hasn’t learned barely enough to warrant himself some educational introduction. To him, there are only two things he’d like to care about: today and tomorrow – nothing after, nothing before. And of that, he thinks his time would best be spent appreciating the world through lenses innumerable.
