Currie's Gratitude 29 January 2014

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky.  [Rainer Maria Rilke]

I never really grasped this idea when I had the chance in my Life to BE close, really close with another human. But I DO understand it better Now. And I have learned it from Gracie. MayBE that is just a default of BEing close to a dog, but I think it has to DO with effort and choice.

We are not the same persons this year as last; nor are those we love. It is a happy chance if we, changing, continue to love a changed person.   [W. Somerset Maugham]

This is what I think is the hardest of all things. On the face of it I wouldn’t imagine that so, but if I am honest, I have to own up to it.

Our business in life is not to succeed, but to continue to fail in good spirits.   [Robert Louis Stevenson]

What a concept. An ambition. I love it.

Do not fear mistakes. You will know failure. Continue to reach out.  [Benjamin Franklin]

Exactly. What he said.

I love you, Currie

So true. There is nothing we can do about changing the past but we can learn from it. :)
