Today at the little shopping center where I had lunch, there was a bunch of kids with their mom playing near the fountain. The mom was cautioning one of the kids to not play on the rocks. His brother adamantly pointed to a sign and declared, "Yeah, see it says 'No climbing on the rocks'!"
The sign actually read, "No going in the fountain" or something like that.
But what the heck, reality is what you make of it isn't it? For all his brother knew, the sign does say no climbing on the rocks because that's what Mom said and that's the reality of the situation (to him).
There must have been some mind-expanding drugs in my coffee this morning because I read Patty's post today and I swear it reads like a metaphor for life. Life is about finding that middle grey, that balance, and it really isn't about managing proportions.
"there are no rules, if YOU think it looks right, then it is..."
Preach on, sista Patty.
