Rules for Engagement
4 December 2021
Okay, I have to admit that I don’t love Brene Brown. By that, I mean, I don’t love her the way other people love her.
During the pandemic, I bought Willie Nelson’s Letters to America. In it, he shared the family rule: Don’t be an asshole.
Today, Saturday morning, looking out at the far vista of the Uinta mountains and nearer, the cows in the pasture, I happened to GOOGLE “Willie Nelson’s Family Rule,” and found this podcast.
In it, Willie and Waylon put things into perspective including, but not limited to, sharing the three family rules.
Waylon: Rule #1, don’t be an asshole.
Waylon: Rule #2, don’t be an asshole.
Willie: Rule #3, don’t be a Goddamn asshole.
Willie continued, “it’s not hard.”
Right now, at the end of 2021, as we re-learn how to be in shared spaces. We need to practice the Nelson Family Rules.
