Well, I did it again. I went to the morning meeting, and it was great. There were a grand total of 3 people there. We listened for about 45 minutes to a speaker tape – Russell S – and the guy’s just an amazing speaker.* He was really entertaining and chock full of wisdom.** Then we each shared for about 5 minutes. All good.
After the meeting the three of us started talking. Anyhow, someone said some shit I didn’t like about the ascendancy of China, and how the west would become extraneous. Then my mouth opened, seemingly of its own accord. Sigh. 2 steps forward, 1 step back, as they say. This blog is appropriately titled, because I’ll need to walk 1100 paces to travel a distance of 12 steps.
That’s what I get for not praying first. I got up and played internet warrior first thing. I bet if I had gotten on my knees first, this wouldn’t have happened. Let’s try to actually learn from the experience this time, Eric, yes? Can we do that maybe?
*That link’s to a speaker tape by this speaker, but probably not the same one to which we listened. I’m not sure which one it was.
**It wasn’t until maybe the 30 minute mark that the speaker revealed he was a prosecutor. I looked up and thought, really? I’ve got a thing about prosecutors.
