To myself I am only a child playing on the beach,
while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me.
- Isaac Newton
Someone I hadn't seen in quite a while (and who I hardly know) looked at me yesterday and said, "And your mom said you turned 50! Well, don't you know, it's all down hill now." Wink, wink.
Well, I refuse to head down whatever hill she's winking about! And not because I feel the need to rebel against the passing of time or botox away my little wrinkles...but because there is so much to learn and to discover! I'm still learning things about myself, for goodness sake! And after me, there's the whole rest of the world! So I'll choose to live each day I'm given as a new beginning and to keep pursuing truth and love and faith and the many vast, vast oceans that lie undiscovered before me.
Really, the nerve of some people.
