Around this time nine years ago, I was working up to a huge life change. I made it a few days later, and have never regretted it. And I can't help thinking that the storming of the Bastille was in the back of my mind at the time. Some things just have to be done by force.
I've made July 14 my day for personal Bastille-storming ever since. Mind you, very few interior Bastilles can be completely torn down in one day. And one would hope not to make quite this much mess.
