Why we do what we do.

When I look at all the hard decisions I’ve had to make
in my life, one thing stands out. I never made the sensible, reasonable,
logical, everybody’s-happy choice.

Oh, I
can rationalize – Teye says I’m very good at that. And sometimes, on the
surface, decisions I make in unfounded optimism and the mad swirling desires of
the heart seem to make sense to other people. Not that often, though. Mostly I
get shrugs and tiny, understanding smiles.
