Drum Major

More from Pema Chodron, When Things Fall Apart:

“When everything falls apart and we feel uncertainty, disappointment, shock, embarrassment, what’s left is a mind that is clear, unbiased, and fresh.  But we don’t see that.  Instead we feel the queasiness and uncertainty of being in no-man’s land and enlarge the feeling and march it down the street with banners that proclaim how bad everything is.”

She forgot to mention Drum Major, that guy in front of the banner, the one wearing that ridiculously high hat and waving that big baton.  That is often me!
