Ham & Eggs

None of us arrived to the present following a flash and a poof of smoke. Our insights, judgment, advantages, street savvy, social skills, and self-proclaimed uniqueness were directly, indirectly, or culturally bequeathed to us.

None of us created something from nothing. Many of us fail to acknowledge what’s been passed to us from peers, parents & predecessors.

This folly is the ham and eggs of hubris.
Eighty percent of success is showing up.
~Woody Allen
Most everything has been served to us on a platter. We've earned little.

Redeeming Mission

Our mission is to pass on what - if anything - we've learned.
