Adulthood - by Mark Jenkins

I know, I've been digressing from the garden stuff, but I was cleaning up some files and I found this quote (which I happen to love) from an old Outside magazine article, circa 1999:

"Adulthood is an insidious process of accretion. If you're not watchful, you begin to grow a shell, a carapace that you are expected to carry lightly: the rigid, high-stress hull of safety, security, status, status quo. The thicker, the better, right up until it crushes you. On the inside, whether you can still feel it or not, your soul is trying to claw its way out."
