A fantastic image came to mind in conversation with a colleague this afternoon: the whack-a-mole game at fairs and carnivals. This is also a common phenomenon in the world where I feel like I am one of the moles. Chances are, if I come up with an idea someone is there to whack me on the head with a mallet. After a while, I might choose not to offer myself and my ideas. I have a choice to make.
I wonder who I am wacking with my mallet?
