I am the most flexible person in my family. That is, I am the one who is generally most willing to roll with the punches, adjust and adapt as necessary, and generally find a silver lining to any cloud. But, with all the change over the last few years – me, the flexible one – I’m ready to settle in for a while. But, when we get ready to settle in, life often has different plans, and adapt and adjust is the modus operandi of the day.

I know it’s unrealistic to want stagnation, the comfort of routine, every day.

One change I must make tonight is closing this post, this pontification on change – so that I may change and go to bed. I am sleepy! Here’s to creating better routines to fulfill my obligations and flow with change is it will always come, like the tide and the full moon.

All the World’s a Stage

All the World’s a Stage

All the world’s a stage. This keeps coming up for me. When I read as a lecture during Catholic mass, but especially when I help put on an event. Each space has its directors, its producers, its actors who all play a pivotal role. Each space has its problems and everyone has to pivot. And, the thought has occurred to me – everyone should, yes, I daresay should, take some acting classes in their formative years so they can truly learn the ins and outs of “all the world’s a stage.”
