Some people worry about the ego -- this rampaging, delightful, horrifying something-or-other that seems to rule the roost with an iron hand. They worry about "I" and its fictitious nature and activities. "I" is pretty wily.
But more wily still, I sometimes think, is "because" and the credibilities it can offer.
Maybe things would be easier just to keep and eye on this "I" but dispense with the "because's."
Try it for five minutes. No more "because's."
