we have this life...

we have some happy days and some unhappy days, some great loves and barren spaces.  we have this life, this instantaneous blossoming.  will i ever learn not to choose among its moments, will i ever learn to walk both its hollow and hilly lands?

- Ellen Gilchrist, Starcarbon

it’s all connected, all of it: the delight and the sorrow, the experience and the memory, the difficulty fading into the background as the joyful center of an experience moves to the front.  you can’t have one without the other, of that i’m sure.  it’s a bittersweet thing to be reminded of this, it’s something i'm always learning.
we all have a choice in how we face life's challenges, we can see adversity as a brick wall or we can find a way to climb over it. 

i'll keep climbing.

happy thursday.....

love sent, xo
