Look at everything always as though you were seeing it either for the first or last time: Thus is your time on earth filled with glory. [Betty Smith, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn]
I’ve been trying to live in each one of my days as though it were both my first and last to live fully and enJOY completely. It’s helpful for keeping myself on an even keel, something I seem to lose a lot lately. And that’s the wonder of it. It takes just a little remembering and I find myself on solid ground again.
Do you ever wonder why things have to turn out the way they do? [Nicholas Sparks, A Walk to Remember]
I don’t wonder this so much since I came to see that “turning out” is just living on. Some things are harder than others to understand. And sometimes it’s actually something of a relief; yet all it boils down to is living on… playing through.
words are like nets - we hope they'll cover what we mean, but we know they can't possibly hold that much joy, or grief, or wonder. [Jodi Picoult, Change of Heart]
As much as I love words, they can BE limited. Or misunderstood. Even misread.
So it has to BE Enough, my best effort to express myself.
I love you, Currie
