"the journeyman is a great intellectual. He is also a great adventurer, a great party animal, a great judge of character, a great conversationalist, a great comedian, a great philosopher and a great self publicist. Indeed, the journeyman is rather of the opinion that if anything in this world is 'great' it must have his name on it and if it isn't, maybe he will try it anyway and make it great by the simple act of lending his name to it. the is a Sagittarian and there are two things that no Sagittarian can resist. The first is a challenge. The second is a tendency to exaggerate. Therefore whatever the journeyman sets out to accomplish in this world must be: a) difficult and b) big. Why set out to climb a piffling little hill like Everest when there are mountains on Mars that are truly steep? All you need is a rope, a pick and a spaceship. In the's mind, this (or something not far from it) represents a perfectly logical thought process. Who cares whether he actually manages to get to Mars? He will have fun trying and at least, if he tells enough people that this is his plan, nobody will ever think of him as boring.
Here we have the essence of the journeyman's biggest secret fear. the journeyman is absolutely terrified that one day someone will rumble him. He will be revealed as an ordinary person who thinks ordinary thoughts. Oh shame of shames, what will he do then? To keep this dreadful possibility at bay, the will go to any length, he will climb any mountain (even if it does happen to be on Mars) and he will swim any sea (even if he can't swim yet - he'll learn how to one of these days - you just wait and see). Or perhaps, more realistically (but only a bit) the will set out to prove that he really is a great intellectual\adventurer\philosopher etc. etc. Much to everyone's surprise (including his own) in the fullness of time... it will all turn out to be true!

Oh well oh well. *yawns*
