31 Flavors



Hemingway once said that the only sports are mountaineering, auto racing, and bullfighting; the rest were merely games. The only fights I ever got into were well, ones I couldn’t get out of. I’ll leave mountaineering to the experts, the sherpas, and the rich who buy their way up the great mountains. My auto racing experience doesn’t go beyond the local go-cart track. I don’t like to fight but I’ll do what I have to do. The Dao does what it has to do. We might not like it, but it’s what has to happen. Peace should always be the first option, but the wise man always leaves all options on the table. Sometimes, you’ve got to be a warrior. If you’re cornered, you have got to come out swinging. Not everybody can be a Gandhi.
