Real Lessons

Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after. --Henry David Thoreau

Some of the best men I know fish. I've been pondering that a little tonight.

I read Julie Johnson's article Life Lessons I Learned While Fishing These things seem so much like real wisdom to me...

Here's the summary
Be patient.
A small ripple can make a big difference.
There's an appropriate time for everything.
"The early bird gets the worm"--or in this case, the fish.
Don't tell tales too big; they'll come back to haunt you.
Just let it go.

Maybe it's time to go fishing.
Ozarks. Passing Time. Love. Fish. Tamarind Sauce.
