When I saw this I had two thoughts; I wanted my friend and ex-business partner, Jim Nagle, to have it to hang above his computer work station, and the other was that this is a beautiful sentiment. It describes the way I’ve lived my life. Maybe this should be carved on a tombstone, if I was going to have one, that is.

Well, Nagle got it and hung it on his office wall. I’ll just have to wait and see how long I can keep-on skidding broadside in a cloud of smoke!
