Shrink The Problems Down To Size

I got tired of that guy's face in the post below, so I shrunk him down to a more fitting size; to match his character. Most problems are probably bigger than need be when first they grab our attention. Then with proper outlook we can step back and shrink them down to size.
But, like most bromides and self help analogies, this plan has its limits.

I would imagine that being in the water with a 40' great white staring you down would be a tough problem to blow out of proportion or shrink to manageable size. Wankin Willy Metz, on the other hand, is not.

I'm thinking of holding a raffle to fund the next Tour. It is undecided whether the winner is guaranteed I will not visit, or that I will. One way or another a trip will occur. It looks more and more like it won't go further than the Republic of Texas though.

I'd love to be able to go on to NC and up to jam with Bobby's band. He may have something to say about that, but I bet I could hang well enough not to screw things up. Anyway, next trip is likely going no farther than Austin and back, with maybe a detour to Taos and that AZ town I like besides Jerome. Have to remember the name.

Maybe if I went barging in on people from the old JS, the word would get out and people would pay to have a chance for me to stay away. Like the old protection racket run by mobsters; "buy or die insurance", as the junior mobsters in junior high called it when they shook the scared kids down for money. I grew up with some genuinely creepy people. But tame compared to the high self esteem, no conscience crop we have been perfecting for some years now.

Pay me, your insurance agent, for protection from me, your insurance agent. $50 guarantees you won't hear from me for a couple of months. Today only, a special annual protection fee: For ONLY $150.00 you can be sure I will not cross your divan for a full 12 months. $250.00 buys 2 years. $2000.00 buys a me free rest of your life!!!

So, maybe forget the raffle and I'll make it easy by taking direct payments with a money back guarantee. No risk to you.
