What a Ride!

Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty, well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside, totally worn out and proclaiming, "WOW! WHAT A RIDE! (sent yesterday by a friend)

    I like that analogy! It's like the difference between walking slowly and carefully along a smooth, straight sidewalk--or taking the wildest roller coaster with your hands in the air and your eyes wide open!
    Though personally, I'd go for something like a hilly, winding, peaceful yet surprising path through the woods.

    That's it! We all need to live life like a Yorkie puppy! Legs flailing to reach the next adventure, eyes alive with excitement, ears flopping from bouncing up and down with happiness, and... yes... skidding sideways around a doorway, entering a room like Kramer on Seinfeld, with narry a fear of what's waiting on the other side. Now that's livin'! Ahhh, to be a Yorkie... Sue B.
