Three recognizable characters are trapped on a stage of their own making; that’s what you get when images and words ignore their responsibilities.

Never had the night air filled their minds with such sounds. Never had the night air filled
their minds with such sounds so completely. No sooner had the night air filled their minds
with such sounds so completely, than another night less dark than before arrived with
different sounds. The different sounds of that different night filled their minds with sounds
completely. And no sooner had that different night filled their mind with sounds completely,
than a yet different night again less dark than before filled their minds with sounds as
completely as before. Night after less dark night, each different than the previous night,
sounds completely filled their minds.
There was the difference of the sounds and the difference of the nights, and the
completeness with which they filled their minds. Each sound was different than each other
sound, and each night was different than each other night. And each completely filled mind
was different than each other completely filled mind.
Were you tired after traveling all night?
Yes, a weak business climate had us all feeling tense.
And did you arrive well after twilight?
We unloaded our treasury bonds at great personal expense.

Were you threatened by loneliness and fear?
Never. The base probability of loss protects me.
Did your childhood anxieties reappear?
Yes, until I drowned them in a buy-and-hold strategy.

chance. Even chances. An opportunity. A good opportunity. A golden opportunity. Good
prospects. Even prospects. A good chance. An off chance. Hope. Small hope. Good hope.
It’s possible. It’s conceivable. It’s attainable. At all. If at all. It’s reachable. It’s achievable.
On the bare possibility. In time. In due time. By and by. We’re hopeful. We do hope so. It’s
promising. It’s very promising. It’s feasible. In good time. It’s timely. It’s fitting. It’s reasonable.
But it’s a gamble. It’s a risk. It’s risky.
One day. One day soon. Someday. Someday soon. I hope so. We hope so. We have a
good chance. We have half a chance. We have a sporting chance. Favorable prospects.
Well-grounded hopes. One day. One day soon. We do hope so. We can only hope. An
