Mission #15 of my adventure involves giveaway.  At the moment, I’m not very good at it, which is not to say that I’ve ever been that good at it.  I can often give a thing away, but less often can I magically disenchant my attachment to the thing after it is gone.  For example, almost a year ago, I gave up lattes because I thought I had a fairly serious sensitivity to dairy — it was clear to me that I had to make some radical changes to my diet.  I haven’t had a latte since, which might make one think that I’ve given away lattes quite successfully.  However, the attachment is still there like a phantom limb that itches at the most inopportune times.  When giving something away, whether it be an actual thing or the attachment to a particular outcome, its the itch that must become the focus of one’s attention if there is to be any hope of success.  And when I say success, I mean freedom from the headlock (more like heartlock) of the attachment.
