“The one who follows the crowd will usually go no further than the crowd. Those who walk alone are likely to find themselves in places no one has ever been before.” ~ Francis Phillip Wernig

Behold, the lone wolf, loving dangerously on the outskirts of the tribe. Stretching comfortable boundaries into vulnerable horizons. The lone wolf is a periphery keeper tasked with maintaining the delicate infrastructure that makes up the bridges between worlds.

He is a magnetic beacon, vibrating at the crossroads, attracting new knowledge just as resolutely as he gives it away.

The only things he fears are cages and domestication.
