Life is what it is.
It comes as it does,
And flows where it flows.
To accept it as it comes
and not control where it goes,
Makes it easier to be within its flow.
And from the journey,
peace and wisdom grows.

    It is not the signposts, ahead I search for...but the crossroads, of opportunity, I seek...As always glad to be along for your journeys scripted. PEACE (Report) Reply

    Well said Danny - much wisdom here, though not always easy to follow as we so often endeavour to change what cannot be changed. (Report) Reply
