Good morning this grateful morning!
...Meanwhile these wandering seconds continue to tick by.
I find myself seeking wisdom from those beyond my time.
You need to be uncomfortable and apprehensive: True strategy is about placing bets and making hard choices. The objective is not to eliminate risk but to increase the odds of success.
Prefer et obdura; dolor hic tibi proderit olim.
Ovid, w/a minor addition :)
Prefer et obdura et authentica: dolor hic tibi proderit olim.
Be patient and tough and authentic; someday this pain will be useful to you.
Such wisdom gives my wandering spirit something to lean into. Hopefully some comfort to a buddy as well. :) Have a grateful weekend. **a picture from a great friend, who was once a former buyer/seller/buyer client from the past. Here is a pic from his west facing backyard acreage, after a storm... damn. great picture Jeff!
