"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
