It's funny how life lulls you into such a mind numbing boredom and daily mediocrity that you don't even realise it has happened. You live in the middle of the road, with no great lows or depressions, but no highs either. Things are balanced, neutral, safe and suffocating. Then one day you start to take a little risk and that leads to a bigger risk and the ride starts to become interesting and thrilling until you realise that you weren't really living before, only existing. The highs are then incurably addictive, despite the corresponding lows you know you must endure.
