Let It Go (Out)

Some pipe smokers strain to avoid relights and berate themselves when they fail.

I have come to welcome relights. Relax. Go slow. Sip. Put it down. Let it go out. Talk to someone. Relight. And look at that pile of burnt matches with pride — a measure of relaxation achieved perhaps.

I find it’s better that way. Hence my lack of interest in competitive pipe smoking.
