Free Chat Friday, Week 12

Happy Friday, News Viewers, March 26, 2021…..REALLY? The weeks fly by and we continue to see a country in crisis which is also on the mend. Daily I get the sense that whatever happens, we have an Amundsen at the helm, the first explorer who reached the South Pole, beating Robert Scott for one reason: smarter planning. . . .

Biden has made me think of Roald Amundsen this week– venturing into the wild but not without a plan and a crew to work with him to carry it out. This week we’ve seen more wild, more chaos, but we’ve had an experienced captain at the helm whose operation is planned, is focused, competent , action-oriented and truthful to guide us through territory not always safe.

“I may say that this is the greatest factor: the way in which the expedition is equipped, the way in which every difficulty is foreseen, and precautions taken for meeting or avoiding it. Victory awaits him who has everything in order, luck, people call it. Defeat is certain for him who has neglected to take the necessary precautions in time, this is called bad luck.”

Roald Amundsen, The South Pole…… 1910-12

And since we’re all in a similar boat as the Amundsen and crew, exploring territory new and sometimes rough, frustrating and bizarre, we take time to chat about anything and everything. What’s going on in your neck of the woods, and how are you feeling about it all? Glad you’re here ……now watcha got?
