“What’s in the bottom of the well comes up in the bucket”
–an old Tennessee Saying
You’re probably thinking, “Kirk that’s simple, water’s always gonna come up in the bucket.” Not necessarily…if you got snakes in the well, then

“A man’s life is what his thoughts make it”
–Marcus Aurelius (Last and Greatest of the Five Good Roman Emperors}
