How? It's A Mystery!

The real trick to life is not to be in the know, but to be in the mystery."  - Fred Alan Wolf
By Raine - Inner Voice Art
"Everything within me grabbed hold of this thought.  "To be part of the mystery”, makes the journey sizzle with possibility, on constant safari of the universe."


“However, to see into or through something requires intuition and also strength to stand upon what one sees.”
— From Women Who Run With The Wolves, Clarissa Pinkola Estes

In the movies.....
Shakespeare In Love - Dialogue snippet.......
Philip Henslowe:  Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.

Hugh Fennyman:  So what do we do?

Philip Henslowe:  Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.

Hugh Fennyman:  How?

Philip Henslowe:  I don't know. It's a mystery.

"For my part...the nothing we do, is keep on going.  That is not always easy to do, is it?  It hasn’t been for me, but somehow, some way, I have managed it.

Age has mellowed me on many levels.  But for the physical changes, the wearing out of the body, age has been good for my mind and spirit.

I have not “arrived”, with nothing else to learn,...

If I think I can do a thing, I can!!!  It is making me stronger.
