As I have aged (and have I aged!) I have become less inclined to freakout over every setback or turn of bad luck.  I try to see some good in any situation – you know, to find the silver lining.  As bad as it might be, it could be worse.  As the life experiences add up, a perspective starts to come into focus.

as bad as it gets

Poor kid. Her world has come to an end. It won’t be the last time.


My mother always said “What doesn’t kill us makes us stronger”.  Indeed.  And so we get stronger.  Until….

In a case of perfect irony, to live is to die.  No matter how strong our lives have made us, no one gets out alive.
