"Patriotism has nothing to do with Conservatism. It is actually the opposite of Conservatism, since it is a devotion to something that is always changing and yet is felt to be mystically the same. It is the bridge between the future and the past."
—George Orwell, The Lion and the Unicorn, 1940
Well, I guess if you did it, Richard, I have to do it, now. :)
1. I like that I didn’t give up playing the piano when I was a teenager, when I was fed up with it. I like that I kept playing and now I’m far from bored when I do.
2. I like my curiosity and questioning.
3. I like that I am creative.
4. I like that I’m less shy that I used to be.
5. I like my patience.
What a weird list… I don’t know yet if I’ll bother ten of you with that. :/ (not to say I was bothered myself, though…)
