Even I Don't Know


I both laugh and cry,
embracing life's full spectrum.
I learn as I go.

How can I select
a single ordinary
defining moment?

This work in progress
life in its full unfolding
defies clarity.

Lately, there has been more laughter and fewer tears for me. Why? I have no answers, but I'm loving it. It could change in an instant, I know, and I need to prepare for the impact. Yet, I try to appreciate the good feeling.

I don't believe that one can, or should look for "a single ordinary defining moment" in life. It's ever changing and evolving. Life is meant to be lived in all it's glory, even if that glory is not up to our expectations.

Muff, it's great to be in a cycle of smiles and laughter. May it last forever for you.

Karen, yes, life in its full unfolding is the very definition of what life is.
