Sunday - Saying Yes to the World

The great affair, the love affair with life, is to live as variously as possible, to groom one's curiosity like a high-spirited thoroughbred, climb aboard, and gallop over the thick, sun-struck hills every day. Where there is no risk, the emotional terrain is flat and unyielding, and, despite all its dimensions, valleys, pinnacles, and detours, life will seem to have none of its magnificent geography, only a length. It began in mystery, and it will end in mystery, but what a savage and beautiful country lies in between.

And here we are in between the mysteries of birth and death. I like the mystery of today!

Mystery is it all.

And what a touching photo again... It really tugged at my heart... walking into "the mystery", into "the beyond." I love it... Goosebumps...
