The cafe quiet and the coffee warm. I stared at my off-white cup of coffee and I asked myself ‘How, why?’ 

I startled the man sat across from me, he was old and frail, he’d certainly seen the wrath of time. I could tell from his eyes. They had seen so much death but so much life too. He approached me, and asked what I was questioning, I answered ‘I’m questioning myself, I’m questioning why I’m chasing the things I chase?’ 

He smiled down onto me like a father speaking to his child and replied ‘Chase only what excites your heart, make sure your intention is pure, and be sure your motives are clear, and then chase like a panther does its prey, fierce and certain’.
