The Triumph of Hope Over Experience!!
Tuesday, April 07, 2020
Yes, it was Samuel Johnson quoted by his biographer James Boswell who said that about second marriages!!
And . . . I've seen lots of second marriages (including my own) which fully justify and even exceed that hope.
So the responses to my "life changing experience" blog yesterday were fairly evenly split between those optimistic and those perhaps less so that this current global experience we're all sharing is something we can be hopeful about. That it will in fact be life-changing for individuals and for communities. And positively so.
Today's my 69th birthday and the sun is shining and the robins are singing.
It has started off and will continue to be a crazy-busy and stressful day.
But but but . . . that's OK.
For one thing, I'm shouldering it side by side with my own personal experience of Hope over Experience -- DH is as always a rock.
And we'll be wearing our masks -- hand stitched by me, out of a royal blue Tshirt and some pieces of stretch royal blue opaque tights -- for a 12 foot minimum distance meeting at our office . . . oh yeah.
Not a great fashion look perhaps . . . but certainly "on trend"!!
But first -- dear Henry will get his walk in the park. We both need it!!
