Weekending: A Commonplace Book

Far better it is 
to dare mighty things,
to win glorious triumphs even
though checkered by failure,
than to rank with those poor
spirits who neither enjoy
nor suffer much
because they live in the gray
twilight that knows neither
victory nor defeat.

Theodore Roosevelt

I've been thinking along these lines recently, 
as I contemplate some big decisions. 
And being 50, I realize that big decisions are especially important.

My sage advice for those younger than me: 
if you dream it, dare it.  
Better to take a chance than to live with regret.
