31-May-2001 -- Ask yourself the questions following:
Do you think it's no good idea to go outdoors during a thunderstorm, having lightning strike down in some 100 m distance, while you're fooling around unsheltered, staring at your GPS like you're able to conjure up that Zeros by hypnosis?
Do you mind to rise at 4 a.m., driving hundreds of miles, getting wet to the skin, making the locals shake their heads about what "those crazy city people" came up with THIS time?
Will you be overcharged by shooting photos with one hand, keeping your umbrella from being blown away and ripped into pieces with your second, wishing you'd have a third one to cling yourself to a trunk in order to avoid being dropped into the dirty meadow around you?
Would you mind that the photos won't look that marvellous, for the clouds above you are creating a twilight that will paint erevything grey anyway, thus making your friends shake their heads, too?
Do you care getting ticketed because you've exceeded all speed limits on your way home in order to get back to work in time?
Possible answers (correct one NOT to be crossed out), and To-Do-Checklists as well:
- YES -
You'd better seek adventure on other matters (ask your encyclopaedia under "A" like "Afraid" or "Aimless"). Playing Monopoly for instance?
- DO NOT KNOW -
Quite serious, but 3 out of 4 can be healed... Just join your local A.C. ("Anonymous Confluencers") Self-Help-Group!
- definitely NO -
Don't listen to those little-minded doubters.
Go on confluencing, you're the right stuff for that kind of job!
