    I often imagine what I'm writing,

    is a "jump ball" in contested playoff.

    The game often takes on a life of its own,

    long after the 'opening play.'

    Competitive, smart people, usually have something to add to the discussion.  Something to contribute ...

    even they sometimes find it hard to "stay within the lines"
    I outlined in the original post.


    What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.

      is for the lazy and unimaginative.  Some of the best discussions I have had have gotten pretty far from the original subject.  They were informative and fun, but not exactly "on topic."  I think that makes it feel more like a real conversation which bobs and weaves, dives and spins, as people talk.  Along the way, I pick up all kinds of good stuff.  I do love this place!
