Fire, not sparks, a flame

I want the bonfire of change. I have occasionally created sparks, and I showered sparks to initiate ignition, but I had not seen a flame. Today, I made fire. It is inconceivably tiny, it is extremely vulnerable, and it will quickly burn out if I do not foster it, if a few people do not follow through, if I have bad luck, or if I run out of resources.

Nevertheless, I made fire. Despite the poor chances of keeping this fire, I have fire and I have a non-zero chance of strengthening this fire.


Wise investors buy on the way up.
