“There is neither happiness nor unhappiness in this world; there is only the comparison of one state with another. Only a man who has felt ultimate despair is capable of feeling ultimate bliss. It is necessary to have wished for death in order to know how good it is to live…..the sum of all human wisdom will be contained in these two words: Wait and Hope.”— Alexandre Dumas, The Count of Monte Cristo
I didn’t even get a chance to go see fall foliage this year and there’s already 6-10 inches of snow falling today. That’s the thing about life… You just can’t put off something thinking that it will still be there when you get to it. Next year, I’ll plan a trip to the White Mountain as soon as I see some color changes on the trees.
Finally, the weather was warm enough for us to spend a day outdoor today. A little windy but the clear blue sky and sunshine made up for it. I got to wear my pink blazer that took me almost four months to find. There’s so many other ways I want to wear it with but for now, jeans will do since it was so windy.
“It doesn’t pay to say too much when you are mad enough to choke. For the word that stings the deepest is the word that is never spoke, Let the other fellow wrangle till the storm has blown away, then he’ll do a heap of thinking about the things you didn’t say.”—James Whitcomb Riley
I’m sitting here lost in my own thoughts of an ever growing pile of life’s worries. The thought of tomorrow’s responsibilities and deadlines make me yearn for those days when mom barely finished the first page of Cinderella and I would be knocked out. Life is so much simpler when Apple and Blackberry were just fruits.
