Hey Guys,

So, I ran into a little turbulence a day or so ago—just as the end of World Series Game No. 2 was rolling around.  Which reminded me of a little book I read back in January 2014, Sun Tzu’s The Art of War—Chapter III: Attack by Stratagem to be specific:

Section 13—Thus we may know that there are five essentials for victory:

  1. He will win who knows when to fight and when not to fight.
  2. He will win who knows how to handle both superior and inferior forces.
  3. He will win whose army is animated by the same **spirit** throughout all its ranks.
  4. He will win who, prepared himself, waits to take the enemy unprepared.
  5. He will win who has military capacity and is not interfered with by the sovereign.

Section 14—Hence the saying:  If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the results of a hundred battles.

So, then, as appliedthis is how that notion helped me work through the turbulence:

And then, lastly, I’d just like to note, that although the aforementioned text is not to be confused with Grimes’ Acid **Reign** Chronicles:  The War of Art—there is harmony in everything, and seeing is believing but of course ;0)

To the Moon and back,

All my love,

Maris
