"There is no end, indeed, to making books or experiments, or to travel, or to gathering wealth[...] We may study for ever, and we are never as learned as we would. We have never made a statue worthy of our dreams. And when we have discovered a continent, or crossed a chain of mountains, it is only to find another ocean or another plain upon the further side. In the infinite universe there is room for our swiftest diligence and to spare[...] Even in a corner of it, in a private park, or in the neighbourhood of a single hamlet, the weather and the seasons keep so deftly changing that although we walk there for a lifetime there will be always something new to startle and delight us."

-Robert Louis Stevenson, virginibus puerisque, 1881


Life has its ups & downs...but if we remember that things always change and are always changing, we know that we can make it through. I'm done with winter. I want sunshine & warmth. I want spring. Big changes are afoot for me this spring. While I'm super excited, change also means new unknown things...but I know myself & I know I need change to make my life feel worthwhile...to not feel stagnant. Perhaps it's due to growing up on a boat where things are constantly in motion (including your soup on the table!)...new breezes, smells, & winds...tides change, life changes. Remember, that even if we remain in the same spot, the seasons change around us...& so do people. This life is about adapting as much as it is about building roots.
