Rob Kittredge – Of Counsel

Of Counsel to the Justice Centre

Rob Kittredge learned the importance of freedom from his father, was called to the Ontario Bar in 2007, and likes this poem:

Your life is your life.
Don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.

Be on the watch.
There are ways out.

There is a light somewhere.
It may not be much light
but it beats the darkness.

Be on the watch.
The gods will offer you chances:

    Know them.
    Take them.

You can’t beat death,
but you can beat death in life


And the more often you learn to do it
the more light there will be.

Your life is your life.
Know it while you have it.

You are marvelous.
The gods wait to delight

in you.

-- The Laughing Heart Charles Bukowski (1993)
