Keep Resilient

I felt like reiterating this very early quote from the BLOG, as we all maintain our pains and illnesses and coughs and aches; seems appropriate as we start into the long run. Here it is:

"There is in the jester a quality of resilience that means that even when he is beaten it does not seem to injure him. It is a resilience of the spirit that might either complement the physical litheness often associated with the jester or offer a contrast to a deformity. He never seems particularly perturbed by a whip descending on him, never inveighing against the injustice or cruelty of his punishment or begging for mercy: 'Like the comic characters in the film cartoons who may be cut to shreds, smashed flat, riddled with holes, or stretched into a thin line, yet which suddenly spring back into their original form or are miraculously put back together, the clown always seems to survive.'" (pg. 135)

I think Ryan said after the show that this show is about surviving? THE RESEARCH APPLIES!!
