The Origins page of my website is my way of stating, how I’m qualified to share my thoughts. Occasionally on social media, etc., you will see a short biography, or bio, that suggests a person has studied with the University of life, or they attended the School of hard knocks. I have felt at times with the former, that it was a reaction against clever academics who might have little commonsense. Either way, such statements are meaningless without details. Even with details, one person’s hard knock is another’s daily routine.
I think courage is the right attitude in life, and to go along with any opportunity, knowing that your first significant chance, might be your last!
