Quote of the Day – December 28 2012

“We travel, some of us forever, to seek other states, other lives, other souls.”
― Anaïs Nin

Tho most times its our soul that we seek in the other and at times the journey becomes a bit more challenging than we expected. My son Zev and I are on a trip to visit relatives back east and we have run afoul of a snowstorm in Montreal. It’s an interesting feeling being at the mercy of other people’s scheduling and choices and other people’s behaviours and it really brings home how the only thing that we can really affect is how we react to everything. I feel fortunate in that Zev has become a young man at least as adaptable and accepting when things get a bit rough as I am and now we are safely ensconced in a room for the night ready to continue tomorrow. Would we be here even if we had argued and fought and complained the whole way? Probably and eventually but it helped to have someone else realizing that we needed to keep our sense of selves and senses of humour intact through it all.
Yet in my son, I not only see reflections of myself and my partner but also the man he is fast becoming and I feel proud.
Blessings, G

    I do come baring a message and a gift that I hope you will like.

    Have a very HAPPY NEW YEAR in 2013. Hopefully, we will all find our dreams and wishes listened to and become a reality in the GOOD sense of the word. Love Peace Joy and Bliss I wish to you. jk the secret keeper Jennifer Kiley

        1. Yes for sure… one of the things that hit me when watching Sunday in the Afternoon… was the line “The two things that we can leave behind are Children and Art”
