    Arrogance Is As Arrogance Does

    I've taken enough lumps in life to know that some folks don't really want anyone's friendship. They want followers.  Sorry, can't follow.  On this dog team, *I* am the lead dog.  That doesn't mean our sleds can't ride side by side.  It does mean that I don't have any...

    My daddy made it to 82. I will soon be 52, And I don't see that as being old, I see that as having been blessed with a substantial amount of time to learn and to grow and to appreciate. And yet, I am so behind schedule, my studies will never end.

    Someone told me, "You lack actual experience in

    the world and you don't communicate very well..." It stings but I am very happy that finally someone told me the things that I've hated to admit. Now I have a starting base to go on. The challenge is how to address those problems.
