I may be fooling myself. It wouldn't be the first time.
But I currently believe that there are times when the only solution to whatever ails is to be still and just let the world rearrange and reshape. To do anything else, to force anything, would just be counterproductive.
Last night at dinner, I learned a great new expression that perfectly illustrates my point.
Qui pisse contre le vent, se rince les dents.
He who pisses against the wind rinses his teeth.
