Adventure or Security ?

Are they mutually exclusive ?
Which do you prefer ?
the vast unknown, uncharted, unpredictable  ?
or..
the steadfast, constant, somewhat HUMDRUM ?
Would you like to wake up tomorrow morning to the concept of...
"having NO CLUE what was about to happen?"
or...
Would you rather awaken to your routine coffee, current events, tooth brushing 'same ness' ?
I know one thing to be true...
without exception...
The masses of people would MUCH PREFER the routine...
in its "safety" and "familiarity"....
the piece of mind in knowing that TOMORROW will greatly resemble YESTERDAY....
But MOI ??
I don't know, guys...
I've ALWAYS marched to a different, unforseen drummer....
The THRILL of not EXACTLY knowing what tomorrow will bring...
seems to be actually embedded in my DNA....
And SAME ness  ??
ehhhh...
Of course, certain things need to be dependable...predictable...
June following May....
The Mosque NOT being built on Ground Zero !
The housekeeper showing up on time !  (plllleeease !)
(I'm still waiting for that one!)
a speculum being COLD...
the Harlem River being COLDER...
A WITCH's TIT being COLDEST !!!
Well, you get the point...
But all in all....
The GREAT UNKNOWN ?
Yeah !!
I choose that every time....
How 'bout you ??
