Just some recent personal developments and a couple of shout-outs to LL friends.

Not the best of news... but what can you do? Sometimes fate has to kick your ass to get you to move off your comfortable spot. Challenge accepted.... game on.


[size=+1]"If"[/size]
-By Rudyard Kipling-

If you can keep your head when others about you
Are losing theirs and blaming it on you;
If you can trust yourself when all men doubt you,
And make allowance for their doubting too;
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being lied about, don’t deal in lies,
Or being hated, don’t give way to hating,
And yet, don’t look too good, nor talk too wise,

If you can dream –and not make dreams your master;
If you can think—and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster
And treat those two impostors just the same;
If you can bear to hear the truth you’ve spoken
Twisted by knaves to make a trap for fools,
Or watch the things you gave your life to, broken,
And stoop and build them up with worn-out tools;

If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
If you can force your heart and nerve and sinew
To serve your turn long after they are gone,
And so hold on, when there is nothing in you,
Except the will which says to them; “Hold on!!”

If you can talk with crowds and keep your virtue
Or walk with kings—nor lose the common touch,
If neither foes, nor loving friends can hurt you,
If all men count with you, but none too much;
If you can fill the unforgiving minute
With 60 seconds worth of distance run;
Yours is the Earth and everything that’s in it,
And which is more you’ll be a man, my son!!!
