Why it might be scary if life is good.

“Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature…. Life is either a daring adventure or nothing!”  — Helen Keller

In an earlier post I wrote: “Life being good is maybe one of those deep dark profound and scary secrets that virtually nobody in America really believes anymore…”.

Now I’m sure some readers ran right over that without hardly a second look, but others might have stopped and thought: Really? What is this guy talking about?  How can it be “scary” for life to be good?  What is so “deep and dark” about that?

Well, think about it.
