Conrad’s Devils

Ran across this quote by Joseph Conrad today.

“I’ve seen the devil of violence, and the devil of greed, and the devil of hot desire; but, by all the stars! these were strong, lusty, red-eyed devils, that swayed and drove men — men, I tell you. But as I stood on this hillside, I foresaw that in the blinding sunshine of that land I would become acquainted with a flabby, pretending, weak-eyed devil of a rapacious and pitiless folly. How insidious he could be, too, I was only to find out several months later and a thousand miles farther.”

― Joseph Conrad, Heart of Darkness

Stray Arrow

Went out to do some yard work and saw this crossbow arrow halfway through my fence.  This is a fence about 25 yards inside of my property.  Looks like it came from the geniuses who live behind us.  Decided it was best to let the police discuss it with them.  My excitement for the day.
