Quote on my mind

I came across an interesting Aldous Huxley quote yesterday. "Experience is not what happens to you; it is what you do with what happens to you." I really like the quote and it seems particularly applicable at the moment.

I like it.

Thanks.

Oh, and as for brutal honesty. IMHO, it is a way to say things about things that you are upset or pissed about, and rationalize it away. It often seems to leave its recipient with no recourse that does not make them out to be "just angry at hearing the truth." Unfair.
There are ways to approach issues, or items, or whatever, without exploding your targets eyeballs.

True that. We should catch up and have a drink on the playa this year. Anything in particular I should bring that would make you grin?
