Does anyone? Sometimes I think that this is such a lie. We find ourselves bit by bit, piece by piece, on the path of Life. There is never — with the possible exception of the Buddha —a moment we suddenly Find Ourselves in front of the Taj Mahal or in the Grand Canyon. Part of what I got out of this piece is the endless, everyday discovery of what’s important. The shuffling of details and priorities. The way we make a difference in the world by not being consumed by making a difference in the world but by simply doing our level best. It’s so much easier when we let go of Huge Dreams in one sense, and let the Real Dream take us along. Sometimes that Real Dream is ever so much better than what we might have envisioned. I thought I was going to be a nurse. Truth, my nose is WAY too sensitive to deal with body fluids and odors, and I hate being around pain. Hmm. Probably a good idea Life gave me a different Dream. So far, it’s been one hell of a party. Better than anything I could possibly have imagined.

Would YOU have imagined Harleys and bad boys in your early youth? Naw. But there you are.
