**disclaimer: I have had a good bit of wine tonight - been celebrating 20 years with my spouse - not bad for a couple of thirty-mumble year olds! Any excessive goofiness or bad spelling can be blamed on the vino! But I'm serious about the selfish thing. I firmly believe that selfishness gets a bad reputation, I think it's necessary to avoid insanity and burnout and people should feel free to be selfish if it harms nobody else. Not to imply that you, in particular, don't feel free. I'm just sayin', in general....we all gotta take care of #1 sometimes and if (for example) something as harmless as holding onto things you've made by hand make you happy then gosh darn it you KEEP those things and BE happy and don't ever feel bad about it.
WHEW. I'm gettin' all philosophical here. It was some VERY good wine! LOL
