A bird in the hand is excrement.

I tend to take life a little too mildly, I settle for second-best quite often.

But if I look back and examine how much that’s cost me, over the years… Well, I wouldn’t recommend it. That’s a lot of lost opportunity inherent in “just take the safe path” and “take the sure thing”, over the course of a lifetime.

“Everything in excess! To enjoy the flavor of life, take big bites. Moderation is for monks.”

Heinlein’s aphorisms feel like better advice. Wish I could keep them in mind more frequently, when making choices.

But I tend to be a pussy, when it comes to betting on the long shots. Most of the time, anyway.

I feel better about trying to catch those bushy birds, recently.

Yet… I can’t tell you yet. Time be a man of mystery and hold my cards close to the vest.

Closing with a Cliffhanger…!
