Jumping off.

People who know me know that I love famous words from other folk. I often use those words as a jumping off point for my writing. A quotation from Beyond Good and Evil by Friedrich Nietzsche (1886) was the starting place for "Shiver." It has informed all of my work on the show so far. I thought you might like to see it:

"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."
