“Sometimes the cards ain’t worth a dime if you don’t lay them down”

-Robert Hunter

OK, So I’m an old Deadhead.  I was at the Capitol Theater in Port Chester, NY last night seeing what’s now left of the band, an incarnation called Furthur.  They opened the show with the Grateful Dead anthem Truckin’ and while the line that gets the cheers is ‘what a long strange trip it’s been’ I was struck by the line quoted above.

We have to take risks. We have to play our hand sometime.  We have to gamble, in terms of putting ourselves out there, in order to the reap the rewards we seek.  It’s a bit of broken record at this point and perhaps stating the obvious.  Whether we say it in terms of Nike or Yoda or Goethe or Jerry:

Dream Big!

Do it!
