Easy does it now!

“Researchers, more than a decade ago, found that more fatal heart attacks occur on Christmas Day than any other day of the year. The 2nd busiest day is December 26th and the 3rd busiest is January 1st.  The pattern has continued for so long that health care workers coined the term “Christmas Coronary.” Heart Health

Slow down…easy…collect your thoughts…deep breath…think now…it will all get done and what doesn’t is fine…peace on earth? How about inside your head, heart and stomach? Oh, I’m not immune, but I must remind myself too to slow down the mind, the pace, the intensity. Easy does it now…….

The Grind…….

“Let us pause in life’s pleasures and count its many tears,
While we all sup sorrow with the poor;
There’s a song that will linger forever in our ears;
Oh hard times come again no more.

Tis the song, the sigh of the weary,
Hard Times, hard times, come again no more
Many days you have lingered around my cabin door;
Oh hard times come again no more.”

Hard Times, Popular Song, 1854

Wheels Turning….

“There’s nothing worse than taking something into your head: it turns into a revolving wheel that you can’t control” Ugo Betti

Ruminations, on and on, be damned. You consume my mind, my life. How to escape, how to turn toward something, someone that takes these harsh, spinning wheels from my mind?  Peace be with you. Blessed peace of mind. Take my hand, be still. For now be still.

TSA & The Really Big…well….. Carry On Gear?

Have you sensed the extra tension brought to your life while passing through airport security these days? Maybe it is just me. I was always excited to travel before. Now, I just have this elevated sense of anxiety and resentment to get past some bozo’s with an inflated sense of duty. Yes, yes….’just trying to protect you’….whatever. So speaking of inflated, imagine this ‘problem’ as Johan Falcon attempts to pass through airport security with his super schwantz taped to his thigh…apparently a record breaking appendage that freaked airport security. They can never be too careful or embarrassed.

JONAH FALCON’S ROD INTIMIDATES SECURITY

So, this remotely segways into when you attempt to pass through airport security do you have a clear idea if reels, lines, flies, rods are acceptable for carry on? I would be interested if anyone has access to a definitive statement on the transporting, as carry on, of fly fishing’s basic implements. I have read varied opinions re this and have had varied responses at airports. Flies ‘yes’…flies ‘no’ for example.
