Thinking about it this morning, I realized that “quagmire” might not be the most accurate metaphor.
Let’s try “labyrinth” instead.
You may assume that’s the definition of the hedge maze from the end of “The Shining,” not the über cool David Bowie thing. Trust me, on the best day of my life I’m not 1% as David Bowie on the worst day of his life.
Keep moving. Never give up, never surrender.
And maybe it’s like “Doom” and at some point we’ll find the chainsaw.
