This has been a really kind of bizarre start to the week. Today was great for the most part. I was able to do a bit of relaxing. Saturday stirred up a lot of energy in the world and I am not sure this was an up week. But, today I had a number of chances to put things in perspective. Thanks to everybody.
Man in the Arena
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
Some times in life we don't get to effect our path and it is a matter of following life. Today was following my room mate Jimi down Ingles and Wolfy. It was everything I needed today.
