In everyone's defense, we are analyzing rather detailed issues in a format where tone and tenor are left mostly inferred. It doesn't make the process of the discussion any easier. I try my best to assume that everyone wants to help.
When I was a little kid and was learning
to ski, my dad always told me that the only skiers who never fall down were the ones who never try to get better. I'm ok with falling down. Most days of my life I know something at sunset that I didn't at sunrise. I believe that to be the privilege
of living with awareness.
