There are few consistencies in life,
one we can count on is the rising and
setting of the sun. Even the blossoms
on the vine may come forth before there
time, upsetting the balence in thier
nature.

As we beings with superior knoledge go
through our life's coarse we are unable
to predict with any amount of accuracy
in which way to walk. But yet we only
live to succeed in our visions of life
and to gain the many things we think we
cannot live without.

Lilly's toil and spin about with only
the garment God gave them, how do we as
humans come to need so much and care or
value life so little. By the way there
is another constancy and that is death,
may we learn to dance before it is to
late.

wow..this is beautiful and rich in wisdom...very deep and thought provoking.
great work...take care, janet marie

 Now for me some words come easy...
But I know that they don't mean that much
Compared with the things that are said when lovers touch.
You never knew what I loved in you--
I don't know what you loved in me...
Maybe the picture of somebody you were hoping I might be...
How long have I been sleeping-
How long have I been drifting alone through the night...
How long have I've dreaming I could make it right...
If I closed my eyes and tried with all my might
To be the one you need...
Jackson Browne

Very nice...and I know what you mean..it seems like I am always starting over again. Never will be a John Travolta.   James
