Fuck around 5 days a week instead of 3. Be in the mountains in July and August, down on the gulf in the spring and fall when the reds are running and out in Terlingua in the winter.
I met a guy who hit a couple million, in a year he was busted and working construction again. I asked if he wished he had held on to the money, he said fuck no, bought my mother a nice house, bought my sister a nice house, got cars for the nieces and nephews, did some really cool things for some people who took care of me when I was down. Wouldn't change nothing, made a lot of good peoples dreams come true.
Impressed the shit out of me.
My Father was my maker. Poverty was my maker. Distrust was my maker. I have met them all my life.
