Today has been a day of reflection.
I am thinking of Tina's family and how they are coping
with their unimaginable loss.
And I am considering how important it is to live your life well
and fully and to be in a state of appreciation
for each day. All of our experiences bring us
to where we are at this moment. Regret is futile.
I am grateful for my life, for the sad and joyful moments
and all of the uneventful days that are a joy themselves
with their beautiful, reliable ordinariness.
And I am grateful for the people who touch my life.
Life goes on~ as it should, boldly and recklessly, reverentially and with predictability.
It goes on, unfurling before us like a pathway in a dark forest
or a wide swathe of beach that skirts a turbulent sea.
We have no other way to go, except with open hearts,
forward, always forward.
