Sadness

May 4-6,’16 ~QofDay~ – P B Shelly – To a Skylark

Do you agree with the following:
“We look before and after,
And pine for what is not:
Our sincerest laughter
With some pain is fraught;
Our sweetest songs are those that tell of saddest thought.”
– P B Shelly – To a Skylark

Nope.

Sure there is always some sadness in life, sh*t happens.

And just existing is such an amazing thing!

So much to do.
So many interesting things to explore.
So many new ways of looking at things and thinking about things to try out.
So many new skills to develop.
So much joy, just in being!

I spend very little time pining for what is not.

I do what I can to improve the lot of all, within the limits of what seems appropriate to me.
