MT HOOD, OR—I sit in my rig and watch the deer. Unlike the one last year, these approach while it’s still light out. I’ve tried to scare them off—to warn them of the hunters soon to come—but they don’t take me seriously. They leap off a few yards, then silently creep back in. They know I’m not a threat. For some reason, they seem to like the the new plant shoots near my van—as if the rest of the forest isn’t completely filled with them.
The other day my mother said, “You need to spend more time with others, Wayne—you change them.”
Yeah, I know.
The less there is of me and all that.
I was never very good at taking praise, let alone tooting my own horn, but Mom’s words reminded me that I needed to put together a testimonials page I’ve been putting off.
For at least a year, I’ve been conflicted on this. It seems so self-serving—but I finally did it. Like I say, I’m not very good at taking compliments or self-promotion and this seemed like both.
So I’m glad that’s over with. No more inner conflict.
And I was surprised—really surprised. Reading all those comments compiled into one place brought tears to my eyes.
I am so grateful to you, Reader. Maybe She (Mom gets TaoGodHer and I confused sometimes) has changed you, but know that you have changed me too. Thank-you.
