 Once in a while.. more or less, there comes a time that one wants to just relax, have fun, and simple enjoy the flow. The flow of electrons, the flow of heat and light, from glowbugs, the flow of thoughts, warmth, friendship, and camaraderie of meeting like minded folks, doing the same things as you. Once in a while, as the flow of blood through our veins, and I'm pretty sure, even tho there may be discussion from some.. that all the ops have this, once in a while we enjoy the moment, and just the moment, then move on to the bigger picture, or not. There are times when not.. is just as good or better. There are times when after all is said.. and that is usually a timed event, (one runs out of breath, or clock) that a reflection on the accomplishment is needed to assure oneself that, in fact, what was done, provided all possible to learn from, to enjoy, and to improve upon. IF all that is ever done is the headlong rush to improve at all costs, the single increasing digits in that allimportant column - TOTAL.. An entire universe of knowledge and enjoyment has been wasted.   Pure comparison, from year to year, season to season, contest to contest, station to station, operator to operator... is NOT a pure science or untainted function. I'm out of breath. 
Have a great day,
