Tao of the Day  
When you lose, say little. When you win, say less.
(the back of a young father's t-shirt who was out walking his baby in a stroller)

Sometimes you win just by starting.

that's beautiful.

I had a really rough weekend and I've spent the bulk of the morning watching Pema Chödrön's interview on Faith and Reason. there is so much wisdom there and I am so far from it ...

I've watched that interview several times since you first sent me the link, and it has been seriously saving my ass.

I've started practicing meditation and boy is funny. I think my record so far is 3 whole seconds of silence before my third thoughts say, "Dude! You're not thinking anything!"

*rolls eyes*

If you want to vent about the weekend, I owe you about 500,032 hours of venting reciprocation ;) Also, I love you, and you have so much more wisdom than you give yourself credit for.

I want that shirt. Any idea where I can find it?

Alas, I never saw the front of his shirt. Felt like it might be sporty, like Nike or something...
