Have you ever thought:  defense is not what I do, it's who I am!  Have you ever thought you could gain more control of our chaotic criminal punishment system if you could just do more, study more, email more people, go to more meetings, read more books and articles, listen to more lectures, research more, somehow do more to be more, be more to get better outcomes?  (I have.)  Well, my dear friend and colleague, there is a precious, whole, complete you that exists independent of the outcomes of the cases you work on.  Clouds may come and clouds may go. "You are the sky.  Everything else-- it's just the weather."  (Pema Chodron.)  Let's spend this hour breathing, being present, and letting go together.  We are enough, we do enough.  The clouds pass by.
