COT:
Wait Time shared a quote from Leonardo da Vinci that expresses courage and curiosity. “I came to the entrance of a great cavern, in from of which I stood some time, astonished and unaware of such a thing. Bending my back into an arch I rested my left hand on my knee and held my right hand over my downcast and contracted eyebrows often bending first one way and then the other to see whether I could discover anything inside and this being forbidden by the deep darkness within and after having remained there for some time, two contrary emotions arose in me, fear and desire. Fear of the threatening dark cavern and desire to see whether there are any marvelous things within it.”

Wait Time acknowledged the PAX for standing before the cave and confronting their fears and seeking the marvelous things that are achieved in the gloom of a workout. Sad Clowns often have no interest in anything – they find nothing of interest in “doing, seeing or reading.” We must continue to help Sad Clowns that stand before the cavern.

Wait Time
