Currie's Gratitude 19 June 2014

Books. They are lined up on shelves or stacked on a table. There they are wrapped up in their jackets, lines of neat print on nicely bound pages. They look like such orderly, static things. Then you, the reader come along. You open the book jacket, and it can be like opening the gates to an unknown city, or opening the lid of a treasure chest. You read the first word and you're off on a journey of exploration and discovery.   [David Almond]

I am a pretty willing participant in the Journeying parts of Life. I am also content to just BE, Right Here. I gave myself a very low-key birthday day. I took in and I enJOYed and I listened and I hope I gave a whole lot more than I held onto.

Mostly I learned that there are different sorts of happy birthdays. MayBE the Past really does NOT equal the future?!

What is wanted is not the will to believe, but the will to find out, which is the exact opposite.   [Bertrand Russell]

I think the will to find out is simply taking Life as a slice with everything on it.

Just because they disagree, doesn't mean you ain't right.   [Toba Beta, Master of Stupidity]

WOW!!! Does this ever sum somethings… clearing away the dust.

I love you, Currie
