These are the words I’ve learned to say that help me a great deal:

"You’re right."
"I’m sorry."
"So what."

And I’m getting a lot of mileage out of something a Chef told me a long time ago:
“The more you explain now, the more you will have to explain later.”

And a friend of mine, he wrote a poem about clouds, and asked what do clouds hang on to, and he's going through some kind of shit, he has been going through it for a long time, and in all kindness I want to tell him, I did tell him, that only half of life is about hanging on, and the other half is letting go.

But he's gripping too tight to know what I'm talking about, and I didnt want to tell him that its ALL about letting go. Its all about surrender.
So I'll just say "OK."

Letting go is a dangerous, radical concept. I bet the thought police have already surrounded your bunker and are ready to ninja themselves into your room tonight to wipe your brain of such traitorous ideas.

really. what were you thinking ???

They have the house surrounded and a SWAT team coming down the chimney, the detective on the bullhorn is asking me to lay down my weapon and get those hands up, nice and slow.
hey red!

"...only half of life is about hanging on, and the other half is letting go." Simple yet powerful.

I've enjoyed reading your posts this morning and will be back. You've got something going here; not sure what it is, but I like it. Thx.

Thanks Bert.
I'm not exactly sure what it is either. But I keep showing up.
Love your site man. I gotta start fishing again, when I can get my energy back up.
