At 5 A.M every morning and just before it gets dark at dusk , I rise, put on a gait of concentrated disinterest climb the stairs open the doorway. There lies a world of possibility waiting to embrace me, hug and seduce me by its virgin charms, hitherto unexplored by men tied to endless travels of futility. Today the event will commence. The hour is set. The moment has been etched in my head. Nervous, trembling, exhilarated somewhat careless, I let myself slip out into an extended blur. For the pain of conclusion, of bones breaking, is inevitable . However, every now and then I ask myself, as I pass on and on to the edge of the cliff. Then the balcony bares open its heart, bids caressingly for my final attempt. The Preamble to my moment of reckoning.
