Around the bend

The reason the earth is round is so you can’t see too far down the road. – Isak Dinesen

To have courage for whatever comes in life – everything lies in that. – St. Theresa of Avila

The first step on the journey is to lose your way. – Galway Kinnell

That photo of the curving bench reminds me that we can only see so far. And that attempting to plan beyond this horizon – as I so desperately try – is a futile effort. Consider this a new effort at rolling with the punches; hearing my own daughter say that was like a reminder from the universe. Oh these unintentionally funny, occasionally annoying, endlessly entertaining children of mine can be wise!
