Tao Te Willie

On the way home today I finished listening to the Tao Te Willie (pronounced Dow TA Willie). It was written by Willie Nelson and one of his friends. I found the book really refreshing. Ol' Willie has been around for over 70 years and he's spent most of those years playing music and golf. I'm not wild about golf, in fact I've never played, but playing music appeals to me.
Willie talks about his life and the things he's learned. He doesn't dodge the ugly parts. He takes full responsibility for his life and the more I listened, the more I liked what he was saying.
He had some good ideas on the approach to life - treat people right, eat right if you can, get plenty of exercise and drink a lot of water. He tries to be kind to everyone, especially Mother Nature.
I guess I thought he would be harder on the president, but a few jabs aside, W got off easy.
He did devote some time on the topic of peace. He also told a bunch of corny jokes, most of which I have already heard but all in all, I would recommend the Tao Te Willie.
Today our project team made its pitch and so it will be some time before we know if we hit the mark. Whether we did or did not, we gave this thing our best shot and I plan to sleep in tomorrow. It has been a rough few weeks. Hopefully I can get back into the groove of writing and say something new and interesting.
