Deep Thoughts for the Day: Control

i have this useless talent. . .

when i was in high school i took drum lessons. i never did become a very good drummer. however, i discovered that i was possessed of an innate ability to twirl a drumstick. not a very useful talent when you can't really play the drums very well. but it keeps my fingers busy when they get bored.

the thing is, i can do this so much better with my right hand than i can with my left. no matter how much i might practice doing it with my left hand and neglect coaching my right, it will still always be better at it.

some things truly are beyond our control.
