Denial isn't Denial

Dear me minus 10 years,

Things ARE what they seem. Older people are older. They just know what they should have known when they were your age but they don't know what they should know now. Listen. But don't follow.

Start taking Rogaine now. Get in more trouble. Start reading Paul Auster now. Take a cooking class. And, please, stop being so dramatic.

Humility is an Old Fashioned Word

Ate at Colorado Kitchen in DC's Brightwood neighborhood last night. Been a long time since I'd had amazing food without the hype.

Speak Softly is a new ebook written by the Harvard MBA grad Ira L. Williams.

Right now, some ant is carrying a load ten times its body weight.

It's Fun, It's Easy. Like Superman.

It's easy to jump into a conclusion, but not out of it.
Elevate your cuestick above the pool table at a 30 or 40 degree angle.
Grimace optional.

It's easy to jump into a feeling, but not out of it.
Elevate your mood for 30 or 40 minutes.
Screaming, laughing, crying optional.

It's easy to jump.
Elevate yourself.
Options are endless.
