Sometimes life throws you a fast ball and you either duck in time, smack it out of the way or get hit. I’m not too sure this is the right analogy or saying. I like to make those things up. But I am going with this. Your reaction is what you can control. Well, sometimes. But you get my drift. Perhaps.
By now many of you may have heard of all the tourist concerns in the Dominican Republic the last few months. Recently, Red Sox player David Ortiz was back in his hometown at a nightclub and was shot. Supposedly, ge was shot as a case of mistaken identity. Oops. Not good in any way. He was shot in the back Sunday night and the bullet went through his stomach. I can’t even imagine. Luckily he is recuperating back in Boston.
Tragedy aside, there’s an interesting video, that has been released, of the shooting incident. Mind you, I am one of those people who can never see the action in those fuzzy onsite videos. Thus, it was hard for me to fully see who was shot although the shooter was pretty clear. What fascinated me about the video was a guy who held onto his drink while everyone else around him ran for their lives. My question is does this guy have nerves of steel or he was too drunk to know what was going on?
I vote for the former. He seemed very aware and curious. But he was unmoved. That level of calm is amazing. It is something I want to channel in contentious situations.

Oh Goodness ‘this’ all reminds me of George W Bush..
While not fully impressed with his Orator Skills Oh my
Gosh the ‘End of the World’ Twin Towers coming
down calmly reading a Book About Goats
A Nursery why me i’ve written a 7 Million
Word Free Verse Poem and i cannot
spell Rhyme for it sounds more
like Wry me as Spelled as
i learned to Spell by
Singing the Words
as i digress George
Speaking a Nursery
Rhyme to Children
‘at the End of the World’
Just another Day in the Breeze
as nothing seemed to phase him
then.. and then that Shoe Throwing
Incident that could have been a Shoe
Bomb just a Wry Grin as even that didn’t
phase him then.. hmm.. it seems that Nerves
of Steel might come in more Handy in real life
than how to Spell Potato with an o or and e hehe..
but yes of course it does sound more like Po ta toe true..
at least in the
Field great speaking
skills are generally
more impressive in
the ‘old days’ but
too bad now
of the Nerds
of Love life now…
now just imagine if a person
could excel in most all human
intelligences even if they start out
so weak in some areas yet then they
find a way not to specialize and really
branch out developing previous weaknesses
using fluid intelligence passing Turtles of Crystallized
Intelligence Fact Finding Missions and keeping that intelligence too
now as the Turtle and the Rabbi(t) become Zen yes one Force of Chi..
hmm.. my best advice for ‘Clark Kent’ that really sweaty palmed Nervous
speaking guy like i used to be too.. to gain Man and or Woman Nerves of steel
a few miles
yes stand in front
of the World in Your
Underwear and less
and then.. what is there
to fear after that but fear itself..
Fear destroys everything Good in
Life including our Very Souls the part
of our being that feels gives and shares
Love Agape with all now.. i swear it was
all worth it every last mile every last stitch
of clothing gone.. just to read a poem calmly
at ‘the end
N o W
as the end
is always the
Beginning of Living Loving
Now….. With Zero F (Fred) in Fear..
People with ‘Psychopathic’ tendencies
may go a route of CEO.. Cop.. Surgeon
or Clerical Pastor and Priest key is
low levels of empathy and high levels
of fearless my Father Stayed in Law Enforcement
46 Years that may speak to at least a greater Potential
i too might become fearless one day too.. the key is
the Hero Archetype
may come true where the
most Masculine Fearless
Father With Low Levels of
Empathy and High Levels of
Testosterone Marries the Mother
who wins the Best Estrogen Dripping
Empath Filled Figure in 11th and 12th
Grade then Love wins over Coldness within
and it’s only a matter of Years through a Dark
Journey that the Light of Love and the Will of
Fearless becomes the Strength of Grace Under Pressure my friend..
the key is the Father has to Leave for this to actually Happen then one
gets resentment against the Father until the Son and or Daughter becomes their own
Love for Real..
oldest story ever

I kind of like the nerves of steel thing.
I wish I had nerves of steel. I really don’t…
I have been in dire situations. I was the guy standing off to the side and figuring the best course of action while everyone else runs around emoting but not accomplishing anything. That is good if you are trying to figure out how to solve a problem but it is also bad if one is trying to dodge a bullet.
I can just imagine this guy thinking, “He’s not gunning for me. I’m safe. This could be interesting.” He might just be more potentially dangerous than the man doing the shooting.
Hehe. So true! Hmmm
Unawareness, confusion, slow reaction, or just drunkenness, or he could see clearly the danger was past, since the shooter run away?
Pick your choice.
Haha. Very much so, indeed
Maybe he was tired… Nah! nerves of steel.
Hehe. Could be
Whichever, sounds to me like he would definitely be a flask kind of guy!
Yes! I agree for sure 🙂
