"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).

Not Really Beautiful?

"She was not really beautiful, but there was a tremendous calm power behind her pleasant but ordinary features. It was an absence of hang-ups a sense of joyful acceptance, a glow of pleasure at the miracle of being alive.
ln one second she communicated to me the rare and beautiful sense of being completely human."

(The Saddest Pleasure. Moritz Thomsen)
