Call in the Cavalry: Why you have Friends back you up

Sometimes you are running and running and you get backed up into a corner, maybe you get pressed into a box that doesn’t fit you anymore. Ever happen to you? You go left, then more left and you have nowhere to go so you cut back right, then farther right. And just when it’s for sure that you’ve got nowhere to go but  knocked-flat on the ground, splat- what do you do that saves you? You depend on your friends for help.

You lateral. And they lateral if they have to. And guess what, after a while, after you get saved, sure enough some day you’re the one that is there for back up- you get to save the day too. This is just the way it works. No one is alone.

Cool. We all need backup.


Yes it looks pretty damn silly, and you feel weird depending on people some times- is it weak to pass the buck 15 times? I don’t know, but if it ends in a win, does it matter?

  1. Dear Bard of Berkeley;

    You recently brought up the subject of football (Millsap v Trinity video to be exact….)

    While we are on that topic I have a question:
    what’s a more difficult mental activity – watching football or meditating?

    I ask because some people equate the two, that both are in the category of mentally washing away the cares and woes of of everyday life, sometimes called escapism,

    Your comments, direct or indirect, would be appreciated. Lingering in Louisiana
