Waxing philosophical

There comes a moment when it occurs to you that what you considered to be extraordinary, well, might not have been quite exactly that. However, if you find, upon examination, that you still love it anyway, then that might be even better, because it’s realistic.

I guess choosing the right life for you is like choosing the right lifemate. Once the shiny newness wears off, it’s comforting to know that you LIKE it as much as you were IN LOVE with it. And maybe the two can co-exist, ultimately. But that probably only comes after you peel the layers and live with them for awhile independently before putting them back together and realizing that, indeed, the whole package is filled with exactly what you wanted … even if you didn’t really know it in the first place.

On iTunes: Suzanne Vega, “Blood Sings”
