Monday Meditation

A handful of patience is worth more than a bushel of brains.

~Dutch Proverb

But not more than a bushel of crabs at the current market price.
~Deltaville Jamie
It takes a lot of patience to pick a crab. 
Twisting off each leg.
Opening the top of the shell and cleaning out the insides.
Delicately using a mallet and a knife to smoothly open the claws...

And then you realize, after a couple of your favorite beverages,
that it's just a whole lot easier to pound the hell out of it with the crab hammer.

Yes, patience is something I need to work on.


  1. Laughing .. I feel the same and I too need to learn patience ..

  2. Patience is what I need the most help with for sure.
