“The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong.”
–Mahatma Gandhi, Indian political and spiritual leader (1869 – 1948)
“Eating Crow and admitting fault is the first step in receiving forgiveness from others”
–David ‘checkerhead’ Aiken
A quote from Gandhi seemed appropriate on all sorts of levels today. I arrived 24 hours late into India because of a HUGE BRAIN FART. I misread the flight details for February 3rd and showed up at airport expecting to board a 2:00 pm flight which had actually left at 2:00 am. I scrambled to rebook the flight and get myself to India in time to start the gig and succeeded in doing so and shows today went really well – Phew! Thankfully my employer from the Canadian Tourism Commission took it all in stride and all it cost me in penance to receive his forgiveness was several rounds of drink when I got to town. It could have been worse!
