Work in Progress

I’m a work in progress, as we all tend to be. I was bit further along a few years ago but sometimes, sadly, erasures happen. One stroke forward, two strokes back. Even so, and so be it, the work never stops.

Best to wear a hard hat.

Thank you Gabi for the inspiration.

Always when judging
Who people are,
Remember to footnote
The words "So far."

It's all a dance, isn't it? Life, I mean? The tune changes, the partners switch off and on, the dance floor surface is at times glidingly smooth and at others, cobblestone rough.

So the two-step of life is something we all shuffle along to... hoping we'll find our perfect rhythm along the way.

Love that quote Jonas. I'm going to steal it.

I find it interesting how we read things differently. When I read this post, I wasn't thinking of couples at all. Yet Ponita was thinking in terms of relationships when she read it (and that is totally fine, by the way - am not knocking that one little bit). I was just thinking about how we all strive (or should) to be better people (however we define "better"). It's always a struggle. There are always setbacks, but even the setbacks provide some sort of progress in some other way.

While life is full of different types of relationships, I think I was trying to convey that we each strive to find our own rhythm within ourselves. That relates to others in our lives, for certain, and yes, finding the person with whom we are most in sync with is high on the list. But ultimately, it *is* about being the best being we can be.

I figure being on the path is enough.

(I saw a travelling Escher exhibit once - amazing stuff.)

It always tickles me a bit when a post elicits a range of comments. I learn a lot.

I've long been aware that words offer different meanings to different hearts. I always know what it is that I am feeling when I try to express a feeling in words. And you, Dear Readers? You tug me in different directions. Open my eyes to the diversity of the human spirit. Like I said - I learn a lot.

Quaint factoid: M.C. Escher is much beloved by mathematicians and engineers (based on a survey of purchasers conducted by Escher's agents and representatives).
