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.

  14. 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.

I love comments and will attempt to reply to each one. However, lately I have been getting "Unknown" comments that are linked to some sort of web page. I will never open this sort of comment and will immediately mark as spam. I am not interested in opening something that could be detrimental to my blog security etc. Never have enjoyed hackers! Thanks!
