A Beginning in Disguise

 

Every storyteller has a special way she likes to end her tales.  When you hear those words–those
ending words–
you know that’s all there is. 

But real life isn’t like that.  Its endings are squirmier than the ones in stories.  You try to
tuck them in neatly and they kick the blankets off.

The thing about life is, no matter what happens to you, it goes on.  What seems like an ending
is really a beginning in disguise.

I'm a wonderer. I spend a lot of time mulling, pondering, and cogitating. This is just a place to park some of those thoughts.

    Is there something going on that appears to be an ending?  Interesting time we are a-livin’ in, eh?

    @fwren – Not really.  I just thought it was a quote that said it very well.   Life is not so organized as a story–its endings and beginnings are squirmy.      We’re constantly changing phases, but actually we are usually in several at once.  Like for instance, I will very soon be entering the grandparent phase…still seems so very unreal.
