Just when we think a situation is impossible, we see a way to make it work. Just when we start to feel helpless, we begin to have faith in a plan. Is this because we are human and, as such, born blessed with a capacity for clutching at straws? Actually, it is because, for as long as we think we have all the answers, we never tend to ask the right questions.
They say, 'Life is too short.' Perhaps it is not so short, though, for those who are growing tired, who feel the weight of life's daily burdens bearing down upon their backs and who wonder how many more times they will have to play out the same old dramas without ever coming to a comforting conclusion. The weariness that attaches itself to cynicism is insidious. It ends up eating far too much of our precious time.
