Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Haiku Wednesday

Comfort Zone

Comfort Zones are safe.
Growth - at the margin - risky.
Take a chance - burst out!

Some think that I'm strange.
My drummer and I revel
In our uniqueness.

Join the fun!

For some of us taking risks is our comfort zone. I am usually on the cutting edge of something, but just lately I am tired and resting on my laurels. But once I get my wind back, look out!

My sound is my drum
I do what I gotta do
This makes me happy

Thanks, kids.

You can't grow all the time. Some time for consolidation and reflection is also important.
