If all you have is a hammer

“I suppose it is tempting, if the only tool you have is a hammer, to treat everything as if it were a nail.”

– Abraham H. Maslow (1962), Toward a Psychology of Being

  1. Hey Mark! Didn't know you were keeping a blog all this time. :)this post reminds me (loosely) of lyrics from Willy Mason's Save Myself, esp since you mention New Orleans in a later post:When the culture's drowning in a bad dreamSave myself, save myself andWhen the old religion is the new greedSave myself, save myself andThey sabotaged the levee, killed gris grisSave myself, save myself andWhen the vultures copyright the word freeSave myself, I got to save myself andBaby won't you comeBaby won't you come…When the elders all are playing make believeSave myself, I got to save myself andWhen they teach us lessons that they don't believeSave myself, I got to save myself andWhen they build up statues but neglect their seedSave myself, I got to save myself andWhen my love and my hammers all I really need Save myself, I got to save myself andBaby won't you comeBaby won't you come…It's a lovely song; pretty sure you can find it on youtube.
