Taking Chances & Risks

“Necessity is the mother of “taking chances” Mark Twain

“No noble thing can be done without risks” Michel de Montaigne

Have you ever ducked, dodged and prayed through a piñata event? I mean the type that has everyone standing within three feet of the kid with the stick. In a barn, a small back yard, a covered patio or in a basement even. Yes, these are exciting events especially if your own kid’s dental work is at stake during the event. That is the classic risk-reward event that only a kid would temp. An adult might think it through too much…say from a risk management, liability, danger, insurance deductible point of view. Hence the opportunity for being silly, being humiliated, getting cold cocked is lost. A shame when you think of it. I now think life is too short, put on the blindfold, grab the stick and swing with reckless abandonment! Some adults, from my personal observations, appear to view this game as a way of culling out the weak ones from the family lineage/violent/.

      My post is tongue in cheek, for the most part. As a family, we have been invited to many birthday parties for Mexican children. Chaos has often reigned. My kids have always enjoyed the festivities and been openly received to participate. Lovely memories. Hey, it so nice to hear from you!

        ah, I see. only proves that I do lead a boring life that I miss the tongue in cheek lol!
        I love celebrating many cultures. Although I have only been to a very few, i must say I did enjoy myself, the music the food, and the company of course! Especially my friend’s Quincera! That was so much fun!

          Ah, a Quinceañera, a baptism, a birthday party are wonderful festivities in the Hispanic culture here in Oregon. I do hope, somehow, you or you and a friend get to travel south, east, west to explore soon. Winter is hard I imagine. I think it has already set in a bit for you.

            Oh yes it has. I woke up this morning and not only did it snow last night, but it rained!
            I love Oregon! I got to travel thru on my way to Cali! And I really want to travel along the coast to stay longer!
