    When you come across a beaut, post it here:

    All I could think of in Shenanigans was a time I walked into the office of one of my law partners when I was still practicing back in Florida. He had just finished running for state senate (unsuccessfully) and, still a bit obsessed with his TV look, was reading a diet book entitled, "Skinny Bitch: A No-Nonsense, Tough-Love Guide for Savvy Girls Who Want To Stop Eating Crap and Start Looking Fabulous." - @jsb4g

    This one came to mind quickly. Knowing only a few of her accomplishments, I believe the quote speaks volumes.

    "I am a beginner. Yep, and I am proud of it!

    Though I've been descending slot canyons since the '70s and have played in hundreds and hundreds of canyons, I go into each one with a "beginner's mind". That is being open to learning, observing all, speaking up, being confident, not hesitating (as Hesitations is usually a thief), choosing canyons and partners with a discerning eye, moving with the head before the heart, leaving the Ego behind with the first click of a buckle, take care of your partners and ask for help, never turn down a helping hand even though you can "do it" yourself, etc. Okay, enough. I don't want to sing a simple chorus to a knowledgeable choir.

    Words of wisdom from this beginner:
    Take risks, but ones that don't make you everybody else's problem.
    When skills run out, it is nice to have good Luck.
    Also, those who walk away, live to adventure another day."

    When asked what my skill level is, my reply is always, "I'm a trained beginner"
