Night and Day.

THE world can change without warning from night to day, gloom to purpose, strength to weakness. Or ... the other way around.
I've been thinking about my strengths and weaknesses a lot lately, wondering how well I know myself and what has led me to my becoming who I am. Deep thoughts and not all self-knowledge is welcome. Admitting faults can sometimes be no fun.
However, without examining the life - as someone once said - it can not be worth living. (I can't imagine that, but I'm told it's so.)
Well, without going into much more boring talk about "life" and the living of it, I guess I will just wish us all well in its doing and, I say, let's get on with it! - femminismo
p.s. Enjoy the depths of this clematis. Click on it and contemplate the world in a flower.

Well, while the unexamined life might be one not worth living... is it true that an undisciplined life is an immature one? Those wacky Greeks!
I do appreciate the contemplation whether by word or clematis. Both, here, are welcomed respites from the usual hurly burly.
Enjoy getting on with it!

Choices:
Clematis (Clematis Vitalba) is the Bach Flower Remedy for people whose minds drift away from the present into fantasies of the future, or into alternative versions of the present. Often their dreams are of great future success, creative endeavour and achievement, but the danger for people in this state is that their dreams will remain fantasies because the Clematis person is not sufficiently anchored in reality to make them happen.

The remedy helps to bring these people back to earth and back to themselves so that they can build castles in life instead of in the air.

Lovely, eh? It's from the Bach Flowers..
