We play the hand we’re dealt. It’s all we can do. The cards remain the same, although we may swap some for others at times. But even so, it’s not really the value of the cards that matters. It’s not a game where you win or lose. It’s all in the perspective, in the way you look at the cards in your hand.
That’s my bit of philosophical BS, coming at around midnight my time, after an evening of fun as well as some serious conversation.
