Currie's Gratitude 6 June 2014

The world is a wide place where we stumble like children learning to walk. The world is a bright mosaic where we learn like children to see, where our little blurry eyes strive greedily to take in as much light and love and colour and detail as they can.
… The vastness at least reminds us how tiny we are, and how much we don't yet understand. We are mere babes in the universe, all brothers and sisters in the nursery together. We had better learn to play nicely before we're allowed out..... And we want to go out, don't we? ..... Into the distant humming welcoming darkness.   [Jay Woodman, SPAN]

It does seem to me that we are all of us just babies wandering in Life. I am more comfortable with this imagery when I find people and Life falling short of my expectations. Really makes a difference.

The trick is that as long as you know who you are and what makes you happy, it doesn't matter how others see you.  [Wendy Mass, Every Soul A Star]

It’s taken most of my Life up until Now to know what really makes me happy. And to realise that what others see [or think] matters NOT.

Fly without wings; 
Dream with open eyes;
See in darkness.  
[Dejan Stojanovic]

I love you, Currie

Took me a long time, too! Were you raised to believe that you were being selfish if you thought about your own needs or desires? Were the people who taught you this quite egocentric and self-absorbed? ROFL! Took me decades to find the humor in that. ;)
