As the pain killer does its job, I felt a bit more alive. It was already past midnight then. As I wind down, I listened to some classical music, Vilvadi's Four Seasons. We also have the four seasons of life. I like how The Redhead Riter summarises the four seasons:
Innocence, laughter and carefree abandonment fill each day.
The nuance of being alive is celebrated continually with no thought of the future.
Summer arrives with laughter, learning, sunshine and phenomenal growth.
Choices are abundant and the opportunities are spread before us like a feast.
We learn about relationships, love, abandonment, neglect and the pain of letting go.
In between the joys, we discover that there is nothing greater than love’s fulfillment.
In the Fall we begin to relax expectations with a clearer perspective of the past and future.
Some give up the battle to change or improve, remaining stagnant, while others continue excitedly learning.
Winter arrives with wrinkles in soft skin that show regrets, accomplishments and wisdom.
The path has narrowed and the life we chose stretches behind us as a legacy.
Let your story be rich with loving relationships, laughter, joy and a journey of happiness.
