“Our life is frittered away by detail. Simplify, simplify.”

― Henry David Thoreau, Walden and Other Writings

"Wild and precious life", each day a gift, each moment a simple thing, to be savored. Each breath, a victory.

Perfect Zany Hurray! Hurray! Lovey dubby

My thoughts while reading these words were, depends on the time and season of my life. My answer would have been much different as a young person. With age, comes knowledge of what's really important, huh?

Thank you Sharon!

How true Vicki. This quote would have made no impression on me at 19. I would have read, or heard it, without giving it a moment to sink into my mind, or hearing the truth and wisdom of it.

It was such a simple question, but it made me really think. Wild and precious, almost contrasting words, but our life -- no matter our age -- is like that.

And no matter what our thoughts or our plans for today, sometimes surprises are thrown at us and plans that we made have to be changed. Even at our age.

But I like that phrase, wild and precious. That's really how life is and we must be able to accept it in all its various moods, even though we are truly nearing the far end of our journey.

Huff and puff and send me your warmest thoughts, Sally. It was about 75 all week and now it's dropping, dropping, raining, sleeting . . . this is not fun at all.
