Today's theme is: outnumbered.
Inspired by the ridiculous number of flying insects that were creeping me out this afternoon while I waited on the deck for our local customers to collect their produce. I don't know what those things were, but at least they didn't bite.
Though I will say that I'm not a big fan of the one that landed in my ear.
Good harvest day, got everything we needed out of the garden. Three more box program days to go!
There's a certain satisfaction involved in overcoming the odds, a sensation that is difficult to achieve by other means. It provides a small taste of what it's like to be the hero, to have eyes filled with respect follow your every move - if only for a little while.
An addicting feeling. Harmless, when the stakes are low and defeat is as inconsequential as it is expected.
But as the stakes rise, so too does the danger. The temptation to embrace foolish risks increases. Much can be lost... but then, so too is there much to be gained.
And that, my friends, is where the real glory lies.
