In Other Words
the prompt this week:
“Life is not so much about beginnings and endings as it is about going
on and on and on. It is about muddling through the middle.”
I think Quindlen is right.
There is not much we can do about our beginning.
I had nothing to say about my beginning but from what I hear
it was pretty much the usual start of life.
And we don’t have a lot to say about the end when it comes.
I do hope that I live a long time but not too long.
I hope to just stop one day…my choice of time would be during a nap.
All we can do is make the best of the time in between.
As to “muddling through the middle”…
Some have just a few days or hours, most have many years,
and there are those that are around almost forever.
There are folks that are successful in the muddle,
most make the best of it, and some make a mess of it.
Me, I have lived to a bit more than the middle amount of the muddle
and have had some success, mostly just make the best of what comes,
and have been known to occasionally make a mess.
I haven’t always been happy with my muddle but these days I am content.
It’s my muddle and I’m going to “go on and on and on” until it’s over!
