We are paper boats

I am thankful for the changing nature of the universe, for the fact that every day can surprise me, for the fact that we can improve our own lives, for our autonomy and our interdependence.

In some traditions, people respect the deceased by putting their ashes in little paper boats and releasing them down the river.  I think we should release ourselves in much the same way.  Not because we’re dead, but because we’re changing, every year, month, and day different from the last.  And that’s a good thing.

I’m taking today to appreciate the impermanent and the transient parts of my life, while they’re here.  I’d like to write something meaningful on a piece of imaginary paper, and send it out onto the lake.

Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. A cabinet placed between these pedestal sinks adds surface space and storage.
    A sports car for the next century, the Toyota FT-HS features seating for between two and four passengers (depending on whether or not the roof is retracted), and 400-hp or engine output
    from its Hybrid Synergy Drive. You want a Chicago locksmith with the qualifications and skills needed to get you rolling again as
    soon as possible.

  6. These included an improved tighter stitching of seat cover,
    a tidier central console and a modernized mono steering
    wheel with thicker and reshaped spoke and rim. You will also need to get some 45 degree angle terminal ends.
    This allows everyday guys like me to feel like Michael Schumacher, when in reality, I’m not.

  7. We like this webpage for information on banquette seating.
