Ebbs, Flows, Old Friends......


It's really quite remarkable and somewhat dumbfounding to reflect back upon a day's events, emotions, experiences....ONE day....
and consider and even enumerate ALL the ebbs and flows and ins and outs and ups and downs that took place in this relatively miniscule amount time...
For example, in just 24 hours, we experienced ecstasy, fear, bewilderment, confusion, flirtation, nostalgia, sadness, feelings of elation, satisfaction, joy, laughter, tears,
and so on....
The veritable GAMIT of highs and lows...ALL in the timespan of a relative heartbeat...
We ran into old friends....new friends....
Shopped, saw movies, cooked, went out to dinner....
It is NO WONDER that we humans are actually exhausted at the end of each day...
And then, the alarm goes off in the morning.......
and guess what ??
We do it ALL again...
like ants marching up and down the corridors of a tree trunk....
one by one...
an assembly line of ants...

To what end, I ask ?
Where's the pot of gold ?
Where's the RAINBOW, for that matter ???
