Why does it take so very long to learn that life is constantly changing, never perfect, full of ups and downs (even in our body chemistry, forpetesake), and that this light and dark business is an opportunity to become more resilient, more whole, and more accepting. I still find myself longing for a day when my closets are uncluttered, my weight down, my spirits up and all my relationships vital and intriguing. OH WELL!
Our climate here is a reminder of the constancy of change and the need to just take it as it is. Here the earth is starved for rain although the ocean is right there, and then, after years of waiting, the storms come in and drench the soil and the parched hills are emerald green again and the trees wink with drops of moisture, and the sky is pure blue...all washed and renewed.
