Basketball and Embarrassment 

So, in the end, it seems like muscle memory, physical or otherwise, is a thing. The more you do something, the more likely you are to do it again. The more you think about something, the more likely you are to think about it again. And it seems, in my case at least, that the more you try to control what you do and what you think about, the more you realize that you can’t and that you just seem to be along for the ride and that you’re not really sure who’s driving. But it’s okay, because at least there’s a lot of interesting scenery to see along the way.

A Heart at Peace 

In a college course on negotiation and conflict management, I was asked to read the Anatomy of Peace. This was years ago, and I still think about what that book teaches me.
