    “The slaves of chance, and flies
    Of every wind that blows.” – Winter’s Tale

Last Thursday a man in Florida, asleep in his bedroom in his very own home, was suddenly swallowed up by a 60 foot sinkhole that opened up beneath his bed.  Could that be any more other-wordly, science-fictiony unbelievable?  We paltry human beings, we measly bags of flesh; in vain we put up sticks of wood and concrete to try and protect ourselves from the world.  We could all be swallowed up by sinkholes at any time, without any notice.  What a truly frightening thought.
