The Gate to the Future

As another year comes to an end,
each of us stands before the gate to
an unknown future.  A future that will,
without a doubt,
contain “life” in its many and various

That gate, as you might expect, can be
a treacherous gauntlet, leading to a
minefield of explosive experiences that,
without hesitation,
impact your life and the life of those
near and dear to you.

The key, of course, is to step boldly
through the gate, and then skip and run,
without reservation,
into the future, not allowing fear or
timidity to hamstring your adventure.

So stride confidently through that
gate to the future and face whatever
life may have in store for you;
without a doubt,
without hesitation,
and without reservation,
secure in the knowledge that
you can handle anything that
“life” may send your way.

Interesting read

Time Stops for No One

You’ve all heard it said,
I’ve heard it too.
Time stops for no one,
I’m sure that it’s true.

Another year ends,
But the wheel still turns.
Time stops for no one,
Despite your concerns.

Winter follows Fall,
The earth’s yearly sleep.
Time stops for no one,
There’s no need to weep.

The new year awaits,
With the promise of change.
Time stops for no one,
It’s not at all strange.

So greet the new year,
With renewed anticipation.
Time stops for no one,
Commence the celebration!!

Karen and I went to see "Star Wars The Force Awakens" Monday morning.  It was very good, a lot like the first Star Wars movie many moons ago.

This reminds me of the days when we would catch a flight at the Ontario Airport.  We would stand at the gate outside, walk out onto the tarmac up the stairs into the plane.
