Java Zen:Thinking Out Loud Sunday, 2024.04.21
Until one is committed there is hesitancy, the chance to draw back, always
ineffectiveness.  Concerning all acts of initiative (and creation) there is one
elementary truth, the ignorance of which kills countless ideas and splendid
plans:  At the moment one definitely commits oneself, then Providence moves too.
 All sorts of thing occur to help one that would otherwise never have occurred. 
A whole stream of events issues from the decision, raising in one's favor all
manner of unforeseen incidents and meetings and material assistance, which no
man could have dreamt would have come this way.  I have learned a deep respect
for one of Goethe's couplets:

"What ever you can do, or dream you can...begin it.  Boldness has genius, power
and magic in it."

Looks like Eric Jensen of Jensen Musical Instruments “found” my $2,000 deposit. Apparently, “posted no later than March 31st” means “April 16th” on the Jensen business calendar. I’ll find out tomorrow if the bank is impressed. Assuming it’s good, it means a modification to the Jensen Musical Instruments web site. Until Mr. Jensen compensates me for lost interest and the cost of the Jensen Musical Instruments web site, it will stand as a warning to others who may be considering doing business with Mr. Jensen. I have heard privately from several people similarly burned by Mr. Jensen that my efforts to shine light on his business practices have yielded positive results for them as well. To that end, I am satisfied and consider it a small miracle my $2,000 deposit was ever returned.
