"The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes." Frank Lloyd Wright
I have been contemplating life and aging quite a bit of the time lately. I find this quote by Frank Lloyd Wright rather inspiring. I took a day trip to visit my dad for his birthday. Driving by my old high school, it struck me that I just don't remember the girl that spent 3 years of her life in that building. I can't remember her much at all, did she have dreams, aspirations, friends. Was she funny or annoying or had any goals in life. I am sure she must have, but the woman that I am now, just cannot quite recall that girl of so long ago.
I have been feeling lonely for days gone past. I miss people that have been so important in my life that I rarely get to see these days. I work and work and work every day to make money to live in my home. A home that I shared with my children. A house full of memories.
I find with all this meditation that I have been rather lucky. Sure I have some sorrows that will never leave, but they can sit quietly in my mind, until I need to dust them off for a good cry every now and then, but overall, I have been lucky and content. I have been fortunate to be able to travel some, I have seen amazingly beautiful places and I have gotten to share that joy with people that I love. I have truly wonderful family and friends and I think I agree with Frank Lloyd Wright.
