Ripples #843: Your Precious Life!
July 20, 2015


Tell me, what is it you plan to do
with your one wild and precious life?
-Mary Oliver, shared by Sharon in Portland, OR


The purpose of life . . . is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.
-Eleanor Roosevelt, shared by Grant in Milwaukee, WI


Welcome to this particular day of this particular week in your particular life. It might be useful to briefly pause in the chaos of your particular collection of errands and chores and appointments and stuff to make darn sure that you are making time for frequent teensy actions and occasional adventures so that your one particular life can indeed be considered “wild and precious.”

You may think there isn’t any time for such frivolity; this proves just how desperately you need it. Trust me on this one: your life depends on it.
