In A Nutshell


Finding energy left is a grim assessment test; so 
how on earth did you come this far on empty - to 
best even enhanced imagination? Yes - you had 
plenty back an age when the game was a full-on 
occupation, trading surpluses like commodities - 
scarcely as engaging then as it seems now - the 
worry is whether you can find a reason sufficient 
to bother reactivating all those rituals involved 

But it would solve most of your problems - where 
due ceremony bleaches clean you see beginning 
and ending entwined like an obvious answer; too 
much pomp and dance obscures why you’ll seek 
almost any chance to determine where you're at; 
in a nutshell, and that’s what’s making demands
