Bruce Godfrey tipped me off to a nice blog post about the five games you need to play to live well. It’s a good post, and worth the read. In the section on gambling, there was a snippet from Rudyard Kipling’s poem, If:
If you can make one heap of all your winnings
And risk it on one turn of pitch-and-toss,
And lose, and start again at your beginnings
And never breathe a word about your loss;
You really should read the whole poem; it’s a wonderful litany of what it means to be a man and worth reading periodically to focus one’s endeavors.
Oh, and in the spirit of the poem, there will be no trip report about Vegas.
