Learning As One Goes Along…

"Life is like playing a violin in public and learning the instrument as one goes on."  ~Samuel Butler

I love this quote and even more so, I live this quote.  I am far from having this life thing mastered despite the fact that I have been practicing daily for half a century (OMG – did I just say that??).  I am definitely not a virtuoso, but I hope that before it is all said and done I will at least become proficient in this thing called life.

I most note herein though – in my blog where so many of my flaws and foibles have been visited – that I am happy that I sometimes misplace my fingers and play off-key…I am happy to be a work-in-progress.  What I realize about my current state is that there is so much more room in which to grow and when growing one is so much more aware of being alive. 

So, I am still a student of life and I am smiling about that. 😉

Have a lovely first week of August all!

Day three hundred and ninety-two of the new forty – obla di obla da
