It's been a couple of months already since I last wrote. I'll be back again. Soon.
Sometimes life plays its big cards... death, loss, suffering. Sometimes all that is left to do is to stay present to the moment and see what happens. Even in these circumstances, life presents unexpected openings to new people, new experiences, and higher levels of thoughts melded with complex emotions. Sometimes, it grounds you more in what's important in life and in your life. Sometimes, it leads you there.
The Way It Is (by William Stafford)
There’s a thread you follow. It goes among
things that change. But it doesn’t change.
People wonder about what you are pursuing.
You have to explain about the thread.
But it is hard for others to see.
While you hold it you can’t get lost.
Tragedies happen; people get hurt
or die; and you suffer and get old.
Nothing you do can stop time’s unfolding.
You don’t ever let go of the thread.
Thoughts for creating success in the second half of life.
