"When you begin to think outside the box, you often become some other "leaders" lousy follower. That usually costs something" (Andy Rayner)

"Our guardian angels are bored." (Mike Foster)

It's where I feel I'm at these days. “In the second half of life, it is good just to be a part of the general dance. We do not have to stand out, make defining moves, or be better than anyone else on the dance floor. Life is more participatory than assertive, and there is no need for strong or further self-definition” (Falling Upward. Richard Rohr.120).

What is Our Body?

"It is only after one sees his first dead person that he can truly learn the reality of the body, which is only a temporary housing for the soul. Until that point, the soul inhabits and intermingles to such an intimate degree with the housing—tilling it to overflowing—that it makes it very difficult for one to truly separate the two. And indeed, we shouldn't; for until the soul leaves, the body is very much pulsing with the soul. But once it's gone, the body is revealed to be an empty wine cask."
(The Bastard Tree. M.C. Lang. Pg 72)
