My mind is compulsive but my will is weak and this portal, this ego trap that bears my name and is so easy to massage and mold and tweak gives my mind a short circuit over my will. It does not require convincing my will to allow my body to embrace risk or my spine to be brave, or my cognition to have a plan; it just needs to make the jump to my hands and, if the rest of me has managed to pay the cable bill, my mind is freed from the leash of my will to run.
