Humility

After a rehearsal in which I was told not only how to play the triangle, but also the cymbals, followed by a morning in which members of the Zombie Jungle seemed particularly feral, I listened to a radio discussion about humility.   The guest, Dr John Dickson,  argued for humility as an important virtue, particularly for those in leadership positions.   I particularly liked  the anecdote in which an unsuspecting mountaineer advised Sir Edmund Hillary on the correct way to hold an ice pick.   (and EH was completely gracious in his response).  Ah, to be so humble.
