Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I’ve plied the Yeti with enough green beer to knock out…well, a Yeti.  So now I have a minute or two to share a quote from classic Irish writer James Joyce:

“You made me confess the fears that I have. But I will tell you also what I do not fear. I do not fear to be alone or to be spurned for another or to leave whatever I have to leave. And I am not afraid to make a mistake, even a great mistake, a lifelong mistake and perhaps as long as eternity too.”

– James Joyce, A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man

That’s more than just a throwaway quote, isn’t it?  Fear of ending up alone.  Fear of losing your love to another.  Fear of making a mistake, especially a long lasting mistake.  These are fears that build up inside of us and yet, we need to try to find away to ignore them lest we become so paralyzed with fear that we are no longer able to live life.

But enough of the serious talk…beer!
