Morpheus: You're here because you know something. What you know, you can't explain. But you feel it. You felt it your entire life. That there's something wrong with the world. You don't know what it is, but it's there. Like a splinter in your mind -- driving you mad. It is this feeling that has brought you to me. Do you know what I'm talking about? You can feel it when you go to work, or when go to church or when you pay your taxes. It is the world that has been pulled over your eyes to blind you from the truth.
Neo: What truth?
Morpheus: That you are a slave, Neo. Like everyone else, you were born into bondage, born inside a prison that you cannot smell, taste, or touch. A prison for your mind. (long pause, sighs) Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Matrix is. You have to see it for yourself. This is your last chance. After this, there is no turning back.--The Matrix

Be warned: unlike “travel writers”, I’m not engaging in public relations. I deal in authenticity. My unique currency is an exclusive, honest perspective. My experiences don't always feature heroic, noble characters, “amaaaazing places”, or cherry picked happy endings!

Taken from the beginning, they'll slowly simmer into an evolving, original outlook on our common experience: life. It continues to be a remarkable experience!
