There is life too under the radar, no having to court the ladder to be in the glare of unfiltered spotlight. No having to flare narratives of convenience to keep up with the glow of being in every conversation. No steering every issue to the straits of Narcissus. No walking on a tightrope in being notice-board attraction. Under the radar, there is life too.
