"Millions long for immortality who do not know what to do with themselves on a rainy Sunday afternoon." - Susan Ertz
When I read this quote this morning, I was struck by its truth.
These words describe many of the students that I have taught through the years, these words describe me at some places in my life, they probably describe most of us at some point or another.
One of my students had a lengthy conversation with me before class today, about the present, about living in the now. He said for the first time in many years, he could sit on the porch and rock.......and be happy, just rocking. This young man has reached a turning point in his life.....he's ready for a new path.
This coming Sunday, if it rained all afternoon.........would you wish away the rain.......or you would enjoy it?
