4. Soft Calloused Hands
Is the mark of a potent life gentle, but calloused hands?  Karate – the empty hand – an empty hand can be an open hand or a closed fist.  But many people close their fist and shouldn't punch something or someone.  Their fist is just a superficial feature of...

Chop wood, carry water
We are forever fighting our nature.  We like to think that we were totally in
control of something – if nothing else, than at least in total control of
ourselves.  We made those decisions –
they weren’t made for us.  The sleeping
moments of our lives are 33...

More heartbreak .
 But I can count to 2. * I
don't know why it took 35 years to actually put this into words but here goes.
 A very special person taught me a lesson that had escaped me.  A

saying I’m at my lowest point.  This

Kamil Devonish commented on a post on Blogger.
Honest question: is there a faster way to get a Google search than from the app launcher? I put the shortcut on my taskbar. Win 2, start typing, enter. That alone makes this announcement suck for me. Will be now accepting alternatives for the fastest way to get to a google search since google apparently does not want that for my workflow.

Methinks that Google has a marketing problem.  If no one uses the app launcher and its the fastest way to get to your search page, then your marketing staff should be fired en masse.

The qualitative dimension of victory
I was watching a basketball game last night.  I've taken to basketball with enthusiasm due to the remarkable overlap that I see between it and karate.  Before I get to the thought that I wanted to discuss I'll outline that overlap, as I see it, thusly: 1) B...
