The changing tide

These words resonate with me today in my ongoing practice to keep an open mind and open heart.

Every one of us is called upon, probably many times, to start a new life. A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, loss of a job…And onward full tilt we go, pitched and wrecked and absurdly resolute, driven in spite of everything to make good on a new shore. To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another — that is surely the basic instinct…Crying out: High tide! time to move out into the glorious debris. Time to take this life for what it is.”  by Barbara Kingsolver, From High Tide in Tucson
