Wisdom for today ...

I do not believe that the meaning of life is a puzzle to be solved.
Life is. I am. Anything might happen.
And I believe I MAY invest my life with meaning.
The uncertainty is a blessing in disguise.
If I were absolutely certain about all things, I would spend my life in anxious misery, fearful of losing my way. But since everything and anything are always possible, the miraculous is always nearby and wonders shall never, ever cease.
I believe that human freedom may be stated in one term, which serves as a little brick propping open the door of existence: MAYBE.

My favourite author, I have all his books... Reading this has led me to find and begin to re-read Maybe-maybe not, it's been awhile--thanks.
