I am the boss of trimming hedges. No question about that. So what is next obvious step? Bonsai of course. I gotta imagine it's gonna be a breeze. The only problem with this Bonsai thing is that my only knowledge of the Bonsai trimming comes from Mr. Miyagi in Karate Kid.

So, I guess my plan is to "think only tree" and take it from there. That Mr. Miyagi was onto something in a lot of ways. I've painted a fence in my day, waxed a few cars and trimmed a few trees. What do they all have in common? They require your total focus and you think about little else.

It might be time for me to write a self help book that borrows (steals) the principals of Mr. Miyagi. I mean people are full on suckers. It's bound to be a New York Times Best Seller. I'll call it "Think Only Tree,Lou Milano's three steps to personal success and mental wellness."
