This one is about things I’ve seen that happen too frequently that I don’t even know how to react.

The Greatest Fool

By Emanuel Vasconcelos

I cannot stand the smell of it.

The more I smell the more I hate.

She was on the road once again, the storm had just begun, the winds were becoming more and more hostile but they were nothing that she couldn’t handle, the journey was steady the danger was being ignored. But then everything changed with the appearance of the tornado at the end of the road. There was no way of her to change directions by know, so she had no option but to be consumed by it.

On the importance (or lack of it) of starting something the right way.
