)arrow Suddenly there is no going back, no way out, you’re committed. It’s the moment when bridges collapse behind you, when doors are slammed and silently locked. The shores you left behind are but a memory, having faded in the haze, out of sight and out of mind. Each new step carries the entire weight of your mission and the threat of quick sands jumps out of the dusty pages of an old book, all too real now, demanding respect. Faces become blurry, masked by your speed and erased by the bite of time. Turning around and looking back will only make you fall. Pushing ahead is the only remaining option. It’s the point of no return.
