    Blake said that the road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom. Townes followed that road all the way to it's end. I have travelled down a portion of that road but have not had the courage to follow it to the end.
    Townes paid the price for following that road. He did what the rest of us do not have the courage to do. So we must keep our injured looks to us and tell the world that we tried.
