The equinox is approaching. We are all equal on that day…equal sunlight, equal night. So is equality only for that day? Are not all created equal? I know I am mixing metaphors, but sometimes one idea prompts another in my mind and I love making connections between disparate ideas and facts.
Sometimes I wonder about how things go so well for most of us, most of the time. Sure, sometimes everything falls apart and things and hearts get broken. But if I count the minutes of my life, I realize that in the vast majority of them, things have gone very well. Calamities, disasters, disappointments, failures, injuries or any number of negative things are notable because of the rarity of their occurrence. Maybe they are just signs to shout out to me that life is really humming along marvelously—most of the time.
