I just caught an episode of Reba.  Fun show.  Interesting theme song.  I survived too.  I’m still at it, but I want to do more.  I want to thrive, flourish, shine.  I’ve got lots of ideas, but you can only fit so much into any one day.  Come to think of it, maybe it’s not so much what you do or how much you do, but how you do it. It’s easy to say “as long as you do your best, that’s all you can do…”  There is more you can do. Don’t ‘just do it’, go beyond your best by using your imagination.  Adding even a little flair or flourish puts you beyond what you thought you could do.  I need to remind  myself that the choices aren’t just apples and oranges, but Cadillacs and teacups, too.  If you’re in a game that you can’t win (and yes, there’s only one way out of life) the only way to come out OK is to play for a draw or just head for something compleately off the wall…maybe a new alliance?  Who knows… Just don’t give up because that’s really the only way to lose.  Life and games have a lot in common, which is why games are so often used in allegory.  People who play games do better in school, may delay or fend off dementia altogether and often have a better outlook on life.  At least having a regular game night and active social life enriches the rest of your life.  What the hell, any excuse for a party.  Keep at it and when the barbarians crash the gates offer them a beer, confuse them long enough to get your strategy together.  Here’s to us, doing our best as long as we can.

To us!
