As I ponder things this morning, this pops into my mind:

“The secret of life is enjoying the passage of time.  Any fool can do it.  There ain’t nothin’ to it.  Nobody knows how we got to the top of the hill.  But since we’re on our way down, we might as well enjoy the ride.”               James Taylor – The Secret O’ Life

James Taylor crams much into this opening chorus – wonder, humility, encouragement, resignation – enough to make my head explode.  But he notes later that such is to be expected by this thing we call life.  “Einstein said he could never understand it all.  Planets spinning through space, smile upon your face.  Welcome to the human race.”

As I ponder things I can’t seem to explain or understand, somehow that simple thought seems to help.  “Welcome to the human race.”
