This one is ripe for interpretation and introspection . . . .

Monday Quote

I've always been a collector of quotes, thoughts, etc. I'd find them in books or even carved into desks at schools I visited for band/choir competitions. This one I found in such a place - carved into the top of an old wooden desk at a school I didn't attend. At 16 it struck me enough that I copied it down and even today at the age of 40 (almost 41 - just another month!) it still hits me on many levels.

"Just when life becomes a habit I barely notice, I meet you, of all people."

Have you ever felt like this? Life just the same old, same old and then someone happens along and things just aren't the same again?

Monday Quote

I've seen other people do this on their blogs and thought it might help me get back into the swing of posting more frequently. At the very least - maybe it might spur some discourse or other thoughts worthy of blog posts.

So, today's quote:

Horace Walpole - "Life is a comedy for those who think... and a tragedy for those who feel."

I liked this, it touched me on a interesting level as I consider myself both a thinking and feeling person. I find that if I can laugh about a situation- whether the irony or just the ridiculousness of it all, then maybe it is not so bad that I can't survive it.

What are your thoughts? How do you cope with tragedy or life events? By thinking through them or feeling your way through them?
