Strangely, I had thought the Gun show would have been bigger. It's a nice enough show - about the same size as the one in Austin, but I'd sort of figured folks here to take the "size matters" approach when it came to guns. But hey, lunch at the Big Chicken with the boys, and guns - what's not to like?
It's really an exercise of freedom, one that's not welcome everywhere, even on these shores. Brigid writes of that more poetically, as she always does. Her post says the same thing, differently and better: that some men live under tyranny and yet are free, while others live surrounded by liberty and are too scared to reach out and take it.
Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.May your day be joyous and restful, or busy and satisfying, but in any event filled to overflowing with freedom.
