I found this great quote today in O magazine and it made me think of all of us.

"Every one of us is called upon, probably many times, to start a new life. A frightening diagnosis, a marriage, a move, a loss of a job...And onward full tilt we go, pitched and wrecked and absurdly resolute, driven in spit of everything to make good on a new shore. To be hopeful, to embrace one possibility after another-that is surely the basic instinct...Crying out: High Tide! Time to move out into the glorious debris. Time to take this life for what it is."~Barbara Kingsolver


  1. I'm so relieved you didn't write this although I think you could have. As I began to read I got more and more insecure in myself because of the beautiful words which I thought were coming out of your bright brain. I love this thought. Thanks Amylou!

  2. And what a great new (and a bit scary at times) life so many of us have chosen to start!!! Nice to have such good blog buddies along for the ride...
