The idea that we should all aim to live a life that is linearly smooth is to say the least, a SKEWED view of reality’s impositions. A straight line might be the easiest and most convenient way to travel point A (birth) to point B (death) but reality, thank God, interjects that straight line projection with angular interferences, what I would call the tangential sine and cosine of our trigonometric lives.

Easiest and convenient sound so enticing, but then again shouldn’t it be more interesting and enthralling if, we get waylaid ever so often by haunting tasks that jump out of nowhere that make us hurdle, hustle, stumble, crumble, then grapple to pick up the pieces of shattered emotions, dreams and schemes.

Life should never be so daunting that we become frozen in time, not knowing what the next step to take after picking up those shattered pieces. God showered us with the grace of creativity, so that we could move, side-ways, up-ways, down-ways, but ultimately move forward to look for the pot of gold at the end of a rainbow that is barely touching the horizon of our existence. And what might that pot of gold be? The supreme knowledge that we did not lose our souls along the way.IMG_0908
