Life is like that

 

Letting there be room for not knowing is the most important thing of all. When there's a big disappointment, we don't know if that's the end of the story. It may be just the beginning of a great adventure. Life is like that. We don't know anything. We call something bad; we call it good. But really we just don't know.

~Pema Chödrön


Nothing ever goes away until it has taught us what we need to know.

      It's a hot one, Aud. But, I can sneak away to the coolness of the hills.
