Fools Rush In

Fools rush in where angels fear
to tread, know thyself, the un-
examined life is not worth living,

we are all our own worst enemies
…all kept running through his
head after what he deemed an

unfortunate confrontation. Could
he have done something different-
ly? Of course. Did he learn some-

thing? Of course. Will this inform
him for next time, the inevitable
next time? Hopefully. And finally,

there comes a time to stop playing
the tapes over and over in his head
and second-guessing himself and

move forward; at least that is what
a very learned person, but not an
oft-quoted philosopher, writer,

or anonymous writer of truisms
like those quoted above, told
him — just someone who cared.
