Cascade of Neglect

There’s a Hemingway quote from The Sun Also Rises that’s rarely out of my thoughts.

“How did you go bankrupt? Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly.” 

That passage stands as a warning to be vigilant. It reminds me that it’s a lot easier to prevent than to correct.

This building in western New York was brand new not too long ago. But since then, a cascade of neglect and corner-cutting has rendered it obsolete.

I’ll try to keep this in mind as I make my way through the complexities of life.
