Currie's Gratitude 30 June 2013

It was the challenge of life too, was it not? People could never be fully understood. They were ever changing, different people at different times and under different circumstances and influences. And always growing, always creating themselves anew.
How impossible it was to know another human being.
How impossible to know even oneself.  
[Mary Balogh, Slightly Tempted]

I’ve recently realised some changes in me. Things that seem to just BE there. MayBE they aren’t changes so much as adjustments?! Anyway, I enJOY seeing them, mostly. But there are still times when I surprise myself pretty much entirely.

Do not get attached to the world as it is. Because the world is changing something new is coming.   [Jerry Weintraub, When I Stop Talking, You'll Know I'm Dead: Useful Stories from a Persuasive Man]

I always think there is a way round this truth. There must BE, eh?! But no. It is spot-on.

Two lost things that had survived the seas and arrived on a coastline. What did they do? They implanted themselves in the sand and grew into trees and lined the beaches. Sometimes a lot can come of being all washed up. You can really grow.   [Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow]

We’re all washing up somewhere, living Life. It’s amazing to let that BE a good thing.

I love you, Currie

The only thing you can count on is change. Wonder why we desire stability so badly? ;)

I would like to be able to follow that advice. Sometimes I find it so hard to change..often actually.
Your art and words are encouraging:)
