Magpie Tales 91 or Choices


Where do I sit
Where do I belong
Can I change my mind
And what if I'm wrong
It's so confusing
This life of mine
So many choices
and so little time.

The story of most of our lives, elegantly expressed.

Glenn Buttkus said...

We ask those questions, and
seek the answers, even though
what is unearthed just presents
us with more of the puzzle.
We often need to remember that
we are in lesson for each lifetime,
and the seeking is the adventure;
knowledge is ethereal, fleeting,
incomplete.
