There is such a difference between deciding what to do, and simply reacting without thinking. When that guy I was telling you about in today’s podcast came over to me, I just reacted…no thinking just reaction. If I had thought about it, I might not have been instantly ready to deck him. I might have thought I should cut him some slack. Maybe he was an unwanted child. Maybe the rattle his parents gave him still had the snake attached. Maybe I should have just told him to go home and throw his wife a bone. Maybe he was just going through a non entity crisis. Times like that make you wonder when that “Old enough to know better” stuff is going to kick in. There’s a story about the difference between carefully deciding and just reacting in my Night Connections 3 spoken word CD. It’s called Long Ago And Far Away.
