Much of life is about not being pushed around. Much of life’s lessons are in Dr. Seuss’ I Had Trouble in Getting to Solla Sollew. I feel that effect often in my life. Most people you interact with are like the traveler the protagonist encounters. One must be wary of their type. They are the Walrus. Walruses for lack of the knowing and the doing of things must trick Carpenters into doing their bidding. When you are a talented Carpenter, you are also a magnet for such Walruses. You may not know it when you’re young and could become ensnared on your first journey or two out into the world, such as I was… several times. The definition of stupid is repeating your same mistakes without learning. Yup, I was stupid. But such is life. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger, and oh how strong I have become!
