Transcript after the jump.

Dear Baba Yaga,

How do I distinguish the need for adventure and change from the impulse to destroy a good thing?

BABA YAGA:

Only an ill bird wants to destroy its good nest, & ill birds shouldn’t fly. Is there a sickness pooling in yr chest? ;Only you can feel that nervous black spread.
