The Undiscovered Country

Daughter Number One has landed! We heard from her this morning, and kol b'seder. She is esconced in Beit Canada, getting settled, updating her blog, contacting friends...I envy her, already there with Jerusalem and the future at her feet.

The unknown is the future, the 'undiscovered country' as Captain Kirk quoted from someone else. Like explorers of old, we cross not just continents but time and the tracks of all our crossings lead us to a Future we have made simply by being and doing. Hopefully being and doing in a way that creates a positive future.

The Husband said something once about relationships that probably also applies to the future: "There are good days and bad days. You try each day to make that day a good day, and if you succeed, then the relationship is a positive one. If the bad days outnumber the good days, then the relationship is doomed."

So if we move forward into the Undiscovered Country, and try to make each day a positive one, then we will create a future worth living and have a past worth remembering. But if we waste our time in fear and complaint, we have nothing worth remembering and nothing to look forward to except bitterness.

I'm counting the days! Einstein was right--time IS relative, and the time is either racing past me with too many things to do, and not enough time to do them or the weeks seem interminable until departure.

I'm sure you know the feeling! [grin]
