Taking action

Not a lot of talk about it ……….. the four of us just climbed up and jumped off David’s boathouse roof. Ty is at the apogee of his arc to the water.  I grin remembering it.



Notwithstanding my confirmation bias, this article seems to capture a life theme I admire:


Of course the hand wringers and bed wetters will exaggerate these concepts to make them appear ridiculous ….. any idea can be diminished by that kind of self-serving intellectual dishonesty …. but these notions have always resonated with me.

I also believe I’m one of the luckiest people I know … and I’m incredibly grateful for that. I saw this article many years ago and I still think about it from time to time. There’s clearly a huge overlap between these two ideas. Someone could write a really good book on this subject of “being lucky”.
