A twisting take on one of life’s gifts

Thought of the moment, courtesy of American author and radio personality Garrison Keillor and his take on life:

Some luck lies in not getting what you thought you wanted, but getting what you have, which, once you have it, you may be smart enough to see is what you would have wanted had you known.

In other words, sometimes life’s twists and turns mysteriously take you to the exact place you’ve always wanted to be — a place you never could have described until you got there. 😉

Destination (un)known

Thought for the day, courtesy of explorer Christopher Columbus:

You can never cross the ocean until you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

Sometimes you just gotta jump on the boat and go.

Observed on the trail: A metaphor for life

Yesterday I went for a walk on a lovely meandering trail through the pine flats near my house. The track twisted and turned back on itself so often that it seemed a wonder it would ever reach its destination. But the scenery was gorgeous.

Kind of like life, I thought. Sometimes the long, circuitous, seemingly random path is the most beautiful and the most satisfying.
